City asks for input on sidewalk signs

The city of Sandy once again is seeking the input of citizens on issues regarding the city; this time the topic is A-frame signs.

A-frame signs, also known as sandwich boards, are generally located on the sidewalk outside a business.

The city is asking that citizens take a few minutes to complete a short survey, responses to which will help guide future regulation decisions.

Responses are needed by Friday, Aug. 22. The survey can be accessed from the home page at cityofsandy.com.
