Bill's Newscast: New Sign Code Ordinance?

Prescott Council looks at the sign ordinance

New sign code ordinance?

Changes may be underway for signs placed in Prescott’s right of way. According to City Attorney John Paladini, a recent Supreme Court decision has found the City of Gilbert’s Sign Code has imposed different restrictions based on the content of the sign. The majority of the Court has held that content based laws are unconstitutional. Prescott’s Sign Code is not the same as Gilbert’s because it doesn’t single out temporary signs for religious institutions. However, there are different sets of rules for different types of signs. City government can regulate signs in a manner that isn’t content based. The City also has the option of prohibiting the posting of all signs, including campaign signs, on public property. Council will discuss Sign Code amendments during its meeting at 3 this afternoon at City Hall, located on South Cortez Street.

Looking for Joel Medina Ortiz

$3K in cash could be yours if you have information that leads to the arrest of an alleged murder suspect. Back on October 28th, 2006, Daniel and Lance Cook were trying to pull into the parking lot of a Gurley Street motel when they got into an argument with 2 Hispanic men who were blocking the entrance. Those men came back later with at least 4 others. Twenty-two year old Daniel was fatally stabbed and his brother Lance suffered a slash wound to his arm. The alleged suspect, Joel Medina-Ortiz is a 39 year old Hispanic male who is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 180 pounds. Ortiz was illegal, as were 4 other men police arrested in this case.
