Deadline day for Washington octopus sign
The Associated Press
Inland Octopus owner Bob Catsiff has lost every court decision in the sign code dispute that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The mural of a purple octopus on the store front was painted in September 2010 without a permit.
Catsiff told the Union-Bulletin ( http://bit.ly/XGtMq6) he's continuing his fight by arguing there are other sign code violations and the city has engaged in selective enforcement against him.
City Manager Nabiel Shawa says he hopes Catsiff brings his sign into compliance. Fines for the sign code violation now total about $89,000.
