m Cape Gazette NEWS TUESDAY, AUGUST 5 - THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 2008 13 Church gets free pass to seek sign waiver from county, By Ron MacArthur With a crackdown on illegal signs taking place across the county, there was bound to be at least one complaint. Allen Burbage, a member of Roxana United Methodist Church, ap- peared before Sussex County C6uncil Tuesday, July 15, to ap- peal a recent citation for a sign violation. He said the church was cited for having two signs in front of the building. "We are only al- lowed to have one, so they say," Burbage said. Lawrence Lank, director of planning and zoning, said the main sign used by the church next to the building is not at- tached and not considered a wall si The other sign is a temporary sign that has become a perma- nent sign. Churches and busi- nesses are allowed one wall sign and one ground sign, but the church has two ground signs. Burbage said he would tie a rope to the sign and attach it to Cape Continued from page 12 population, including all stu- dents, racial minorities, students with disabilities and the econom- ically disadvantaged.

That plan drew a few laughs from the audience. Burbage said he was aware the church could ask for a variance on the sign regulation before the board of adiustment, but it would cost $400. "We are a small church and don't always have $400" he said. Councilman George Cole said he would take $400 from his "slush fund," actually communi- ty grants available to each coun- cilman. "I would be glad to give you $400" Cole said. "I would be glad to take it," Burbage responded. The discussion then centered on the issue of donating public funds to a church. "Democrats can't do that, but I'm a Republi- can and can give money to a church," Cole quipped. On the advice of legal counsel, Cole instead motioned to waive the $400 board of adjustment fee to allow the church to ask for a waiver from the sign regulation. It passed unanimously. Burbage met with Lank to get the proper paperwork in order and he was told he would be on the board of adjustment sched- ule within a few weeks. / A high-efficiency cooling system from Lennox can take the edge off of the heat and high utility bills.
