(NBC5-TV News) ROCKWALL – The City of Rockwall passed a new ordinance that has upset some church members and residents.
With a split 5-2 vote, the Rockwall City Council decided to ban non-profit groups from hanging banners and other free standing signs on their property, unless they hang from buildings.
For churchgoer Barbara Chriswell, the city’s latest decision is anything but praiseworthy.
“I think it’s crazy, I think a church ought to advertise or put up anything on their property,” said Chriswell. “It’s their property they ought to put what they want in their yard.”
