Albany - The Albany City Commission may finally have reached a compromise with business owners on a new sign ordinance. Tuesday, commissioners reviewed changes to the proposed ordinance which will allow LED signs to change messages every minute, rather than just once a day. Also, the ordinance will allow only 75 of the digital signs in the city limits to reduce clutter.

Commissioner Dorothy Hubbard said, "My concern had been that we would have a proliferation of signs and that it would look like a strip with flashing lights and we did not want that. I think we look out for that in terms of the future by limiting the total number of signs that we would have."

Commissioners are expected to adopt the new sign ordinance at the regular meeting later this month, although they have postponed votes on several previous occasions.
