Illegal Trailer Signs & Other Non-Complaint Signage

Foothills Council had another discussion today about non-compliant signage within the County adjacent to highways and County Roads.  County Staff is reviewing the current bylaws and will be coming back to Council with an updated bylaw.  Once the bylaw is ready to present to Council, there will be a public hearing scheduled to allow for further public engagement into it.  Watch here and in the Western Wheel to be kept up to date on when the public hearing will take place.
