Tom Swartz residing at 1705 E Main St questioned the size of the sign and Director Marion responded 1 square foot. Mr. Swartz also expressed safety concerns due to the drive only having one entrance and customers backing out onto a busy Main St. Richard Glass residing at 1724 E Main St did not have a problem with the business, but was not in favor of a sign being erected in a residential neighborhood.
