Grand Island City Council Wants Profane Signs Removed

city-of-grand-island(AP) — The Grand Island City Council wants a resident’s profane, anti-government signs removed from his properties.

The council voted unanimously Tuesday to support the city administration’s efforts to have Larry Tourangeau’s signs taken down.

The signs criticize government officials because they refused to indict a former employee of Tourangeau. He erected the signs in 2011, and so far he’s resisted city efforts to eliminate them.

City officials say their efforts are focused on the signs’ violations of building ordinances, not on the harsh criticism they carry.

The signs have been vandalized with red and black spray paint and have been deemed public nuisances.
