Battle Over Digital Billboards In King County: The King County Council will vote Monday on a bill that would allow digital billboards in the county's unincorporated areas. The bill would allow companies to set up large digital billboards, up to 14 feet tall by 48 feet wide, outside city limits. Flashing, blinking or animated signs would not be allowed, and each image displayed on the sign would have to last eight seconds or more. We talk to Paula Rees from Keep King County Beautiful, the group leading the campaign against digital billboards in King County.
