Blue tarp group



Last week, the Post ran a story about how the Kennebunk road crew had erected a new sign in front of the Sea Road highway garage, made from a 1950s-era snow plow. The project had been given a green light by former town manager Barry Tibbetts. However, just hours after the Post went to press, current town manager Mike Pardue reported an issue. Following a meeting with Code Enforcement Officer Paul Demers, it came to light the highway department had not submitted a formal application for the sign, and that, as it stood, it may not conform to Kennebunk’s sign ordinance. A tarp has been placed over the plow while Demers conducts a review. “It is likely the referenced sign will be removed from its current location as it is most important that the town hold itself responsible to its own sign standards,” Pardue wrote to the Post.
