Williams County puts signs on hold for 3 months

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- The Williams County Commission has implemented a three-month moratorium on new signs in and around Williston.

County Planning Director Ray Pacheco says sign permit requests are piling up, and officials don't want county roads filling up with signs and creating what he calls ''the Las Vegas effect.''

Current regulations also are unclear about the sizes, shapes, quantities, heights and lighting considerations to which sign builders must adhere.

Pacheco expects the planning commission to review sign regulations by mid-June, and to have a plan before the County Commission by July.
