COOPERSTOWN – In a unanimous vote, Village Trustees voted to once again allow sandwich boards on Main Street during a special meeting earlier this evening.
“I was a survivor of the sandwich board wars years ago,” said Village Trustee Ellen Tillapaugh. “So much of it was jockeying for space. But this law is better, and it’s important that, in our short season, businesses be able to get as many customers in the door as possible.”
In June, a law allowing sandwich boards was struck down by the board, but merchants spoke up, sending letters and appearing at public hearings.
