TROY — Troy City Council will have a public hearing regarding new signage for the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center at its meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4 at City Hall.

A public hearing will be held Sept. 4 due to the signage exceeding the city’s sign code regulations. Two signs will be located on West Main Street, the third sign on West Main Street and North Oxford, 25 N. Oxford St. and the fourth on West Water Street. The sign on 25 N. Oxford St. will be 7 feet and 4 inches tall and West Water Street’s sign will be 9 feet 4 inches tall. Some of the signs will include light pole features. The ordinance is part of the Downtown Riverfront Overlay district zoning plans.

An ordinance declaring vehicles and equipment as surplus and authorizing its sale is on the agenda. If passed, the items will be sold on GovDeals. The following vehicles are listed to be sold: 1999 Chevrolet Astro Van, 2000 Dodge Intrepid, 2003 Ford Taurus Wagon and 2005 Case Backhoe Super 580M with front grapple/clam.
