City Commission Candidates on Business Sign Ordinance
Both candidates for the Largo City Commission, Seat 4, answered questions at a breakfast candidate forum on Sept. 26.
Question: In five years, Largo's new sign ordinance fully takes effect. As a commissioner, what will you do between now and then to assist businesses in preparing for what will be a very costly business expense to many?
James Robinson: The city should have started being proactive a few years ago. That of course is in the past now. Now there should be more programs to let businesses know what the city is doing.
Robert Hunsicker: Think the sign ordinance has to be altered. The cost is going to choke off small businesses. Want to change parts of the sign ordinance. Largo is Largo, not Beverly Hills.
Editor's Note: Candidate answers are paraphrased, if you would like the City of Largo will televise and stream the complete debate starting the week of Oct. 1.
