Mobile Home Signs

Tulsa, OK – Tulsa Board of Adjustment OKs mobile homes' signs
TULSA, Okla. (AP) The Board of Adjustment in Tulsa has given its approval to signs placed on the ends of mobile homes by a dealer, which had been cited as a violation of a city sign-regulation ordinance.
City inspectors told mobile home dealer Mike Harrison that the signs required a permit, but he claimed they didn't because they weren't promoting his business. Instead, the signs express his religious beliefs, without mentioning his company or the product it sells or using a commercial logo or anything else.
Tulsa television station KOTV said that, on Tuesday, the Board of Adjustment agreed with Harrison, voting 3-to-1 that the signs needed no permit.
