Mount Vernon Council discusses 'nits' and that

-A A +A
By Corey Woolsey

The Mount Vernon City Council met last week and discussed a number of topics, including an ordinance on outdoor message boards and new law enforcement software.

Mindy Bourne of the Area Plan Commission presented an ordinance ammendment proposal that addressed outdoor signs and electronic message boards.

The ordinance states that if the board is lit during daylight hours between sunrise and sunset, the luminance shall be no greater than 5,000 nits. At other times, it can be no brighter than 250 nits.

A nit is a unit to measure the brightness of light.
