The Abbeville City Council will consider in two weeks whether to place restrictions on billboards in town. Mayor Mark Piazza says the ordinance would ban double billboards, electronic billboards, and billboards with rotating messages. The ordinance would restrict billboards to state highways, require a half-mile space between billboards, and place a 40-foot height limit on them. Piazza says existing billboards would be grandfathered into the law if it is approved on May 21.
