Council approves billboard deal

The deal with Clear Channel to take down 831 billboards, which was presumably tagged by Council last week, has now been approved unanimously.

The agreement with Clear Channel Outdoor would remove 831 small and medium-sized billboards -- a two-thirds reduction of all the company's billboards smaller than 288 square feet.


Mayor Bill White said the new deal was a good compromise. The council approved it without discussion.

It was certainly an acceptable compromise to the folks who had complained about the original deal. I know I'm happy with it.
