CORPUS CHRISTI - The city council has signed off on a sign ordinance that will affect those advertisements you see on RTA bus benches.
Council passed the first reading of the ordinance amendment that would exempt the RTA from paying sign permit fee. Under current rules, anyone who wants to put a sign on city property has to buy a permit and pay a one time fee of $149 per sign.
The issue still has to pass a second reading.
