Not only is it illegal to post on signal boxes and lamp posts, merchants were reluctant to place the signs in their windows. Doug Foote, a retired Idaho Air National Guardsman called the Mayor Hotline seeking some concessions to the rules.
But once again the humble GUARDIAN–whose humility is awesome–has the solution. After years of traveling the globe we recall the countrymen of our friends who own the local water company–the French–use Kiosks and city operated electronic reader boards to inform the citizens in towns from Paris to Nice.
It would be a good joint venture of the CCDC, Downtown Business Association, and Chamber of Commerce to fund a couple of installations at strategic locations. The kiosks would be very economical and the reader boards would reduce clutter if made available to any non-profit with events in the downtown area.
