Sign law gets review
The town of Tunica wants to work with businesses, not against them. That was the message conveyed to about 30 merchants who gathered recently at Town Hall.
Late last month, Mayor Chuck Cariker summoned business owners for information about Tunica’s sign regulations.
“Things have gotten out of control...some window signs and temporary signs that have become permanent,” Cariker said. Town planner Bob Barber them outlined key points of the 2003 ordinance.
“Like any ordinance, if it is not systematically enforced, things deteriorate,” Barber said.
“(The ordinance) is there not to penalize anyone from doing business, but to maximize the business climate for everyone.”
