HORN LAKE, Miss. (AP) - After studying the issue, the Horn Lake’s Planning Commission decided against recommending changes to aldermen that would make it easier for businesses to use live advertising to promote their services and products.

The issue has become a topic of discussion in Horn Lake each year about this time for several years because of a local tax preparation service, Liberty Tax, which uses employees dressed as the Statue of Liberty to woo passers-by into the business at the busy intersection on U.S. 51.

The Commercial Appeal reports (http://bit.ly/1h6cxbX) Horn Lake zoning ordinances limit the use of live advertising to four occurrences per year, a maximum of eight hours per occurrence, and the advertisers must stay at least 20 feet from the curb. Also, there’s a $20 fee for each occurrence.
