So the city spends $200k with Lamar for their “business friendly” campaign and Lamar offers a free sign for Veterans & Del Prado intersection, but the city, in the same week, wants to crack down on all the struggling small businesses for their banners, sign dancers, window messages. Yeah, that’s business friendly!
