LA to get $1.2M from building-wrapping sign maker
LOS ANGELES (AP) — City Attorney Carmen Trutanich says a sign company will pay $1.2 million in penalties to settle a dispute over supergraphics, the massive signs that “wrap” buildings with vinyl advertisements.
Friday’s announcement means Sky Tag, Inc. has agreed to the settlement to resolve a 2011 civil law enforcement action that accused the company of violating city law without obtaining permits, approvals and inspections.
Trutanich says the outdoor advertising was used on 17 buildings in Los Angeles, using large vinyl sheets that often covered entire sides of buildings, blocking windows.
An email seeking comment from Sky Tag after hours on Friday was not immediately returned.
