Friday, September 2nd, 2011 at 12:07pm. 1498 Views, 0 Comments.

lagrange kentucky real estateThe Louisville KY newspaper The Courier-Journal had an interesting article today regarding LaGrange Kentucky real estate  sign regulations.  To bring everyone up to speed – last year in the Spring of 2007, the La Grange City Council approved and passed a new stricter sign and lighting ordinance that affected all properties within the community.
