Starkville CIty Engineer Edward Kemp

Starkville City Engineer Edward Kemp gives an update on the city's capital road plan during the Starkville Board of Aldermen work session Friday.

Starkville businesses may have another year to bring their signage in compliance with new regulations, following a public hearing and vote at the Tuesday, June 2 Starkville Board of Aldermen meeting.

The board will hold a second public hearing on extending the grace period by one year for businesses to change their pole signs to monument signs.

The change was influenced by financial difficulties many businesses are facing during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The first public hearing for the extension took place at the board’s May 5 regular meeting.
