City Votes Against Billboard Ban During Busy Meeting

nbcnewsrightnow.com

After more than a year of moratoriums, Yakima’s city council decided against a ban on new billboards Tuesday.

The proposal failed by a 4 to 3 vote, but the council did ask city officials to prepare an ordinance to ensure that the city’s billboards are kept in good condition.

The city council also decided to wait until April to consider any changes to the city’s pit bull ban. City officials are looking at approving an ordinance that would allow pit bulls to be used as service dogs.

The city council is also holding off on any changes to the city bus system until later this month. The council was looking at canceling Sunday bus service because of a lack of funding.

The council did approve a contract with $145,000 contract with a Seattle architect company for design work on a proposed downtown plaza, and the council approved a $45,000 contract with a Michigan company for a downtown parking study.
