Wilbert, Carl F. / History of the town of Mequon
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.
