SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) -- The debate about what can go on sidewalks in front of business continues tonight in Southport. The city's planning board has a public meeting tonight about the rules.
For months city leaders and businesses have squared off over an ordinance already on the books that bans signs, benches and other items from public sidewalks. Owners argue those things enhance their businesses.
The meeting starts at 6 p.m. in the Aldermen Chambers at City Hall.
