Use codes or lose them

Dear Editor:

A past City Council loosened the ordinance on signs in the city. The merchants were given an inch and they have taken a mile.

A work session in early 2012 will address the sign problem after the high season has begun. I suggest the problem be discussed now, not during the high-business season.

And while we’re at it, what’s with the dozens of real estate “for sale” signs on the public right of way we call Main Street?

If we are paying a code-enforcement officer, let’s see some enforcement. Thank You.

Frank Spofford
