Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Lockport auto shop owner David J. Mongielo will return to town court May 29 to deal with a charge of violating the town’s electronic sign ordinance.

The hearing will decide whether or not Mongielo’s prior sign ordinance convictions could be used in a trial and whether or not a violation of the discharge took place.

Mongielo appeared Tuesday to set the date of the hearing. The hearing was supposed to be held last month, but Mongielo didn't show. A bench warrant would have been issued for his arrest had he not shown Tuesday.

The ordinance prohibits electronic signs from changing the format or message more than once every 10 minutes.
