Committee member Dena Bleeker said she did not like the electronic sign now being used at Sonic restaurants. She said she did not like the brightness, motion and that it hit her at eye level.
Electronic signs for the price of fuel have been allowed in Edmond at OnCue Express, 800 S Broadway, and Turbo Express, 1800 E Second St. Council members approved variances from the city's codes to allow both of the signs.
An electronic message sign sits on top of the Edmond Sun newspaper building. This sign was in place before Edmond had a sign ordinance. The only other electronic signs in the city are time and temperature signs.
The sign ordinance was adopted in 1994. Discussion about amending the electronic sign ordinance began two years ago when Bob Williams, of R.L. Williams & Co., wanted to post messages on an electronic sign.
