Council approves sign code changes


The Sandy City Council approved the second reading of an ordinance that amends the city's sign code. In a 6-1 vote - Council President Dave Nelson dissented - the council agreed to set limits on temporary signs, allow electronic readerboards on public facilities only and clarify some definitions.

Existing electronic readerboards, which will be grandfathered in under the ordinance, must not have any flashing or scrolling elements; text must change no more frequently than every 30 seconds.

Nelson dissented because he didn't think electronic readerboards should be limited to public institutions when several businesses in town already have them.
