PSJ commissioners to again revisit sign ordinance

“I look at these small independent folks who complied but you are going to allow this multi-million corporation to leave their sign up,” Buzzett said. “You want to talk about fairness.”

Commissioner Phil McCroan said, “It is not just McDonald’s.”

Matt Scoggins of Five Star said if he had to bring down his sign he would have to close up shop and the city would be out the $1 million annual financial impact from his business.

Phil Earley said it was getting increasingly difficult to do business in the city due to regulation.

“My concern is what is coming next,” Earley said. “I remember when it was government for the people. We have gone past that. I’ve tried to abide by what the city wants but it is getting hard to do.”

Magidson noted repeatedly that the ordinance provided an appeals process, to the Planning Development Review Board and then the City Commission.

There is a cost, to offset the expense of the appeal process, but a process had been provided for seeking a variance.
