The Grain Valley Board of Aldermen on Monday held off on changing an ordinance that regulates business signage.

City staff presented an ordinance to the board that would add a section to a zoning regulation of the city’s downtown overlay district or the Main Street corridor.

The change would allow internally illuminated signs to be allowed in the northern section of the corridor. The section would be north of the Yennie and James Rollo Drive intersection.

Alderman Terry Beebe made a motion to table the ordinance, saying the overlay district needs to be discussed before making a change on what signs can be allowed.

She said it would be unfair for businesses south of the transition zone not to have internal lit signs. People at the meeting agreed with Beebe, saying the entire corridor should be exempt.

Also on Monday, the board approved an ordinance for recruitment services to find a director of public works. Former director Jeff Fisher resigned several weeks ago.

The services will be done by Art Davis Group LLC for $8,000.
