Poor quality signs alarm City Council
February 6, 2003
The Mayor and City Council says it is alarmed at “the very poor quality of signs erected by some businesses and organisations in various parts of the city.”
According to a release from the public relations officer, Royston King, “many of these signs are inappropriately placed, with incorrect spelling of the names of people, places and things advertised.”
The Council noted that standardisation of the signs could help to enhance the beauty of the city, but it appears that is not being practised now.
Persons who are desirous of erecting signs in Georgetown should apply to the City Engineer’s Department and ensure the integrity of their advertisements, the release added. (Back to top)

The Mayor and City Council (M&CC) is appealing to persons to desist from placing boulders and other encumbrances on its parapets, roadsides and other reserves so as to obtain exclusive parking for their businesses and other activities.
M&CC’s public relations officer, Royston King, said in a press release that such actions are a breach of the city by-laws, and constitute a traffic hazard to motorists at various points of the city.
