WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Among some big issues on tonight’s Wilmington City Council agenda was the city’s sign ordinance for businesses.

The ordinance has been in effect since 2008 regulating how much window space a business can use for signage. It wasn’t until this August, though, that enforcement started to pressure businesses to comply.

Tuesday night, council members voted unanimously to approve a six-month moratorium on enforcing the ordinance. Council leaders said they would first like to hear from the public before moving forward with a vote on the ordinance.
