BULLARD-- Bullard city officials are considering an ordinance that would ban new billboards within city limits. Bullard Mayor Teresa Adams-Wilks says prohibiting new billboards will help the health, safety, and welfare of people who live there. She also says it will "prevent eye sores and maintain Bullard's beauty."
However, that may not be the only reason they want to stop the advertising. Adams-Wilks says if the alcohol measures pass in next month's elections, she doesn't want alcohol advertised.
Public hearings must take place for the ordinance to pass. There is a 75-day moratorium between now and then.
