Ballfield Banners OK; Grants To Be Posted Online

The County Council approved a measure this week allowing advertising banners to stay up at places like Kiwanis park and the Soccer Association of Columbia's complex. Several sports programs depend on the revenue but the county received a complaint that the signs violated local ordinances.

According to the Examiner, banners are now permitted as long as they are not more than 8 feet off the ground and are not illuminated. (We'd like to link to the story but can't seem to find it online).

The County Council also approved plans to create a Web site that would make grants and loans of at least $30,000 searchable.
