Estherville Council OKs sign plans

By Staff | Apr 19, 2011

“What’s your sign?” appeared to be the most pressing question at the Estherville City Council on Monday.

Addressing a light agenda, council approved two sign permit applications.

The first permit was submitted by Brian and Tina Reichert for property located at 610 Central Avenue. The couple plans to open a gift shop called “Simply Unique.”

The second sign permit was for Jesse an Brenda Jones, owners of Comfortec.

At their property at 1724 Central Avenue, they will use the current frame, but replace the facing with the company’s information including “GeoTec,” “DrainTec” and “ProTec Finishers.”

In other business, council approved a request from the Estherville Chamber of Commerce to close parking on the east side of North Sixth Street from Central Avenue to First Avenue North every Thursday from June through September from 4-8 p.m.

The chamber is coordinating a new venture called, “Downtown Market.”

Chamber officials also asked to put up a semi-permanent “Downtown Market” sign.

The final action item of the evening was to approve a resolution adopting an assessment schedule for the collection of unpaid invoices for the abatement of nuisances and other services within the city. Of the nine nuisance assessments, five were for snow removal, three for mowing and one for water service repair.
