I just finished reading and article in SUndays Print edition of the Coastal Courier. The story was about the MIdway business that was asked to take down a stand they had on the side of the road for advertising for the business. The business owner followed the mandate from the mayor and the MIdway police department and shutdown the roadside tent.
Later the business owner went to the MIdway city hall and spoke with the city clerk.
The paper points out that "It was verified that the display was located less than 50 feet from the roadway." Therefore there was a violation of the city ordinance. The Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission personnel worked with the business owner and found a spot where the owner could legally operate the stand.
The owner said the he is only waiting on city hall meeting and an official letter from Midway city hall before he re opens the stand. The meeting will be o August 11th.
