‘Communication lines will be open’: Newly elected commissioner takes on TDC in first meeting

Published: Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 04:19 PM.

The county commission is hoping for compromise when it comes to the large black and white directional signs that direct patrons to off-98 businesses.

Though FDOT said they would be removing the signs by Nov. 13, the county received an extension, though a date for further action has not been set. Directional signs are allowed, according to county and state statutes, but they are not to be advertisements and they are not to be on a state-maintained right of way.

Commissioner Sara Comander said the extension may be an opportunity to create a compromise with the state about the signage, and bring all of them up to code as well as make sure they are legally permitted through the county.

“This may be an opportunity for something that is nicer looking,” agreed Commissioner Cindy Meadows.

The next BCC meeting will be held at the South Walton Courthouse Annex Dec. 11 at 4 p.m.
