DUBOIS – The DuBois City Council rejected a request from Dr. Jeffrey Rice to install handicap signs in front of the Trinity Chapel. City Manager John “Herm” Suplizio recommended that council not install permanent signs.
Suplizio said permanent signs would take away a parking spot when signs are only needed a few times each week. He recommended following the precedent of another church to allow signs to be temporally placed while there are services being held. The council approved of this option.
