The Maple Heights School System is attempting to install a $15K sign on our quiet street. The 8 ft. x 6.5 ft. sign complete with message board is unwarranted. There are no more than 125 cars passing in a 24-hour weekday. The mayor said the schools are exempt from the law and codes, which I think is BS.
No one is exempt from the law. At the least, the school should have to follow the city codes which states NO Message boards etc . . . It's a mess. The schools tried to slip the sign in with no permit . . . Dirty Pool. I caught them redhanded. I recently petitioned the city to stop the project. All residents agreed with me that a message board would be too much visual pollution for our street.
The school is bullying us. If the levy doesn't pass the city will go into financial default? A few years ago Maple schools went on a big strike for money. They begged for the levy to pass and it finally did. Now they have money to blow . . . I'll never vote for another levy again.
We need your help to expose this situation. The Superintendent, the Mayor, and the city lawyer are hoping I'll go away. Help!
