Hattiesburg businesses petition sign ordinance

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hattiesburg businesses are upset about an Office of Urban Development ordinance.

The ordinance does not allow business owners to erect billboards, banners and tents without a permit and permission from the Office.

Director of Urban Development Pattie Brantley said, "90 percent of Hattiesburg businesses are satisfied with the current ordinance."

In light of the ordinance, a group of local business owners have rallied together to start a petition against the sign regulation.
