PORT ST. LUCIE — Local business operators can breathe easy about potentially paying hundreds in fines for violating the city’s window signage code.
About a dozen local business owners and managers came to the City Council’s Monday night meeting to discuss their signage issues. Code enforcement officers did a random sweep across the city last month, and the majority of businesses in the Westport shopping plaza received window signage code violation warnings.
“We all know what the economy is doing to the local businesses,” said Mayor Patricia Christensen. “We want to try and help. We’re not here to hurt.”
