Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

A variety of temporary signs are visible in front along this section of N.C. 24, including a for-rent, a for-sale, a political, a business service and a feather flag. Once again, the town commissioners are asking the Swansboro Planning Board to come up with a temporary sign ordinance amendment that could address the sign issue. For details, purchase a copy of the Feb. 19 Tideland News for 75 cents. (Jimmy Williams photo)

Yeah , this is a class act . Got something to sell , just drag it to the side of the road and stick on a sign . This goes for politics as well as commerce . Very Swansboro-esq . Would like to think that we can do better . With out decisive leadership . There will be a hot mess and the darned things will be every where . Hopefully , the new board will be a little bit less geriatric than the old board and be able to see beyond their myopic views .

Spent the 75 cents , read the articles and great job jimmy . So much fodder for comment .

The local real estate industry here needs to clean up their act in town . Broken and apparently abandoned signs along Hy 24 and next to the rec center need to go. Unless you are trying to advertise to the flying public , that is . Been there way too long . There is another one on the Queens Creek rd at Jones Road but it is out of town . The owner passes by it every day but could care less it seems .

The mayor recusing himself from anything ? Good luck with that . More like injecting himself into everything . Laurent was spot on suggesting he recluse himself . You might not like what he says but historically he is usually correct and his predictions do come true . Need more just like him . By the way , when is John going to clean up his business ventures. Broken signage behind the DQ for all to view and refusing to have a place for empty ice bags at his machine across the street . For years the empty discarded bags have been allowed to be scattered about by the wind . Makes one think he doesn’t care . Does he ?

Fred is correct . Why is this sign thing so hard to hash out and implement ? Suspect too many folks and folks with friends with a conflict of interest thing going on . Yes , it is totally enforceable providing you want to do it . To be sure you have enough employees with eyes to do just that . Buttttt then , can’t never could do anything . Could he ?
