LEXINGTON, N.C. — The Lexington City Council will hold a public hearing on Monday to amend the city code of ordinance’s sign regulations for business and industrial districts, according to The Dispatch.

Under the current city code, the city does not permit canopy signs because in the past gas stations that were being re-purposed were using the canopies for oversized block letter signs around the entire perimeter, according to the paper.

The city council will decide whether to amended the ordinance to allow gas stations to have canopies over gas pump areas, as long as lettering or logo is no more than one half of each side of the canopy.

The council will also approve a resolution of support opposing any effort to eliminate or limit the federal tax exemptions on interest earned from municipal bonds.
