Sign ordinance going back to Planning Commission

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Following a public hearing regarding the proposed new sign ordinance, the members of Punxsutawney Borough Council agreed to send the document back to the Planning Commission for further refinements.

Diane Wehrle, co-owner of Mahoning Valley Milling, was the first to speak regarding the ordinance, saying she believed it was concerning the
sign for her business that she co-owns with her husband, Barney Wehrle.

"We have customers all the time who ask where we're located since we are off the beaten path and (they) have a hard time finding us," she said. "That's why we asked Joe Sikora Jr., owner of Joe's Drive-In, if we could put a sign there right by Indiana Street pointing toward our business."

Wehrle said the sign isn't hurting anybody.
