  • Councilman urges common sense in sign removal

    The News-Enterprise

    ELIZABETHTOWN — Councilman Kenny Lewis has asked the Elizabethtown City Council to review its policy on the removal of signs from public rights-of-way, claiming the current method is unfair and inconsistent.

    The issue is often debated during political season as the number of signs surges. Under current city law, signs, political or otherwise, are prohibited in city rights-of-way.

    But Lewis said the city is not consistent with the policy and does not give warning to sign owners before removing the signs.
