The Georgetown City Council held a first reading of an amended sign ordinance Monday. The ordinance would require that a non-commercial flag more than 32 square feet or higher than 32 feet receive a conditional use permit, but it would not be considered a second interstate sign. The reading came after Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis tweeted that Georgetown would not allow an American flag at his planned store in Georgetown because it would be considered a second interstate sign. Lemonis wants to erect a flag that’s 5,000 square feet — larger than an NBA basketball court.
