MANGONIA PARK(WFLX)---What happened to a local town's new ban on hand-held signs?
From what our cameras captured Friday you'd never know the Mangonia Park town council just passed a ban on hand-held commercial signs along our roads.
The ordinance approved earlier this month was to take effect immediately, however, the town manager says businesses are in a "grace" period now and have yet to be officially notified about the ordinance.
One sign holder appeared to have found a way around the new measure.
Sign holder Vince Bacca said, "These are like shirts, they're not like the signs that you hold. So this is like a shirt and not a sign? Right."
Town manager Lee Leffingwell said, "I call it his sign suit. And it's very creative. But it still falls under the ordinance."
