Dubuque City Council Forces Library-Sign Removal

Commisioner ban sign more than 12 in. above ground



The Dubuque (IA) City Council has ordered the local Library Board of Trustees to remove pillars from its freestanding signs at the local Carnegie-Stout Library. According to its order, the board must install the signs either on a limestone or colored-concrete base no higher than 12 in. from the ground (my italics) and paint the sign and base the same color as the library building.

The local Historic Preservation Committee (HPC) complained to the council that the signs had been installed without proper permits or review. Mayor Roy Buol sided with the HPC, saying the city would “set a precedent” if elected officials didn’t support the organization.
