I know our local elected officials, including our dedicated city councilors, deal with an array of important and sometimes controversial issues, but the Wales Park sign seems over the top.Belfast has an extraordinarily competent city manager, who (I assume) has hired competent staff who — had they been aware of the councilors’ criteria for city signs — would have complied. If not, I suggest the councilors could have saved time and energy by practicing their best management skills and delegating the issue to staff to ensure compliance with the city’s sign criteria. Enough said.
