     POWELL, Wyo. (AP) – Sandwich board signs that have sprouted up
on downtown sidewalks in Powell are raising concern among city
officials.
     City Planning and Zoning Commission member John Campbell says
some of the signs do not comply with city ordinances.
     Campbell says sandwich board signs are allowed in Powell with
permits, but most business owners using them have not received
permits.
     Powell Mayor Scott Mangold says there safety and aesthetic
issues that are a concern for the city.
     Several signs are in the middle of pedestrian walkways, and city
leaders worry they present safety hazards.
     City Attorney Sandra Kitchen recommends the city alert business
owners who are in violation of the ordinance. If they fail to
comply, they would be charged in municipal court.
