If you operate a business in Denver and are using sandwich boards to attract customers, you may be breaking the law. In a recent story, CBS4 talked about how the Denver City Council is entertaining the idea of making sandwich boards legal in Denver. Currently, although they are used throughout the city, their use is illegal. However, with the economy down, businesses are looking for a way to advertise cheaply. In addition, the City of Denver is looking for new revenue streams. If the City Council has its way, sandwich boards will be legal, but will require a permit. Seems like a win-win situation to me.
