Guyton City Council members are trying to get the word out about a new sign ordinance for the city.
The city has established a community sign corner at the intersection of Highways 17 and 119 in the old railroad median. Under its new policy, adopted last Tuesday, the city wants to “give Guyton residents and businesses the opportunity to share information regarding local public events, business promotions and public issues,” according to the policy. The sign area also can be used for political signs.
“People wanted to put signs up,” said city attorney Ramona Bartos, “and we didn’t want a cluttered median.”
