Watts vetoes sign moratorium, sends ‘wrong message’

After the Logan City Council voted three to two on Tuesday to place a moratorium on any new electronic message display signs in Logan City, Mayor Randy Watts on Thursday vetoed their decision.In a letter written to councilmembers, Watts explains that he supports working on policies that already exist, but believes the hold on any new electronic signs sends a bad message.”Although I support improving our existing EMD regulations,” he writes, “I believe our current regulations protect the City from inappropriate EMD signs going forward and a moratorium on EMD’s sends the wrong message to our business community.”Furthermore, Watts says the council’s Tuesday decision “is not in the best interest of Logan City and its citizens.”Those voting for the moratorium were council chairman Herm Olsen, Holly Daines and Laraine Swenson with Jay Monson and Dean Quayle voting against it.
