NB Council to Again Discuss Banners

By Elizabeth Ruiz

The fate of the street banner program is set to again take center stage at Monday's City Council meeting.

The controversy first erupted last December when NBU took down a Knights of Columbus banner that read "Keep Christ in Christmas." NBU said it was a religious message--not an advertisement for a local event.

"It's been really a nice thing for our non-profits to have that very inexpensive way to advertise their evets. It's been a shame that we've had just a few individuals kind of pushing that envelope" said New Braunfels Mayor Gale Pospisol. She told 550 KTS A News the Council could plan a workshop to further discuss the program. 

"One of the things NBU was concerned about was there could be some liability of they refused to put up a banner and then an organization that wants it would take them to court" Pospisol said.
