Are you aware that Faith Community Church and the City of Bayou Vista are in discussions with a billboard sign company to erect a very tall and very large brightly lighted digital sign on the Church's property on the wetlands side of the Church building? Any thoughts? A presentation by the sign company will take place at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, January 31, at 6:30 pm, in the Community Building.
