Pro-filter group will pay $1,250 to keep oversized signs
What would a day be without a report from Holland, MI?
A mistake on the size of more than 100 campaign signs that promote Internet filters will cost a Holland group up to $1,250.
The signs, which measure about 11 square feet, went up in yards Saturday, but organizers of the pro-filter campaign were notified Tuesday they exceeded the residential district size limit of 6 square feet.
City officials gave the group two options: remove the signs or pay a $25-per-sign permit fee to temporarily override the city\'s sign ordinance.
Diane Van DerWerff, treasurer of Holland Area Citizens Voting YES! to Protect Our Children committee, said her group intends to keep the signs and pay the fee.
\"I feel so silly,\" Van DerWerff said. \"This was just one of those things.\"
