BRAZORIA — The city manager failed to carefully read the ordinance that outlawed the signs and to City Council’s dismay, an advertising company began construction on a new billboard off of Highway 36.

Olan Massingill issued a permit for Advertising Higher Inc. to build the billboard on the corner of West Smith Street and North Brooks Street in late August, he said.
