Sign ordinance


Sign Ordinance
August 1937, the sign ordinance was passed and notice given
to all sign companies displaying signs in Mequon and to all
those farmers and property owners having advertising signs
on their buildings and lands to have them removed at a
specific time as designated by the sign ordinance.   This
caused a lot of opposition,both by the property owners and
the advertising firms. The ordinance also received favorable
comments by those who apprecisted the enhancement of the
country scenery it would create.   In due time, the dis-
playing of the advertising signs disappeared. One could
tell when you entered the Town of Meauon by the absence
of the signs along the highways.
An ordinance regulating slaughter houses was also passed.
