Milford has made an effort in recent months to bring businesses into compliance with a town zoning bylaw that bans most portable signs and banners.
Initially, 61 businesses were found to be violating Article 3.9 of the sign regulations, which gives businesses 30 days to use a temporary sign, until they can install a permanent one. Exceptions include political signs, or real estate signs.
A report released to last week by John Erickson, the new building commissioner, states that of those 61 businesses, all but 11 had removed their signs. The Department of Inspections is continuing to work with the remaining businesses, he wrote. If they fail to remove the temporary or portable signs, they face citations of up to $100 a day.
The 11 businesses identified in the Jan. 19 report, and the date they were inspected, were: , Nov. 22; Menu Transfer, Nov. 28; Idioma Classes, Nov. 28; , Dec. 5; , Dec. 6; , Dec. 6;, Jan. 3;, Jan. 3;, Jan. 3; , Jan. 3; and Jan. 3.
The following businesses have received warnings about their status, Erickson said Tuesday: Chim Thai, L.A. Nails and Serenity Spa.
