Huntingburg chamber adopts banner policy

From local sources

HUNTINGBURG — The Huntingburg Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the City of Huntingburg, adopted a new policy Wednesday regarding banners near the welcome signs on the north and south sides of the city.

Banners should be 3 feet tall by 8 feet long, and the committee or organization promoting the event is responsible for printing the banners and any related costs, including any damage that may occur to the welcome signs.

A request to display a banner should be directed to the Huntingburg Chamber of Commerce by phone 683-5699 or e-mailed here no later than four weeks prior to the event. Upon approval, the banners should be delivered to City Hall, 508 E. Fourth St. no later than three weeks prior to the event.

Banners will be displayed for two weeks prior to the event and will be removed by city officials after the event. The committee or organization responsible for the banners should retrieve them from City Hall the week after the event. The city will not be responsible for any banners left at City Hall for more than 10 days.

Requests to display banners promoting nonprofit organizations’ functions and community-related events will be approved on a first-come, first-serve basis. Requests are not guaranteed because of possible scheduling conflicts. Huntingburg Chamber of Commerce and City of Huntingburg events take precedence.
