A proud Iowa father who placed a huge sign on his property to congratulate his seven children for graduating from high school has been ordered to take it down.
Clayton Mace of Sioux City erected the 24-foot-wide sign with his children's names and the years they graduated from West High School on the hill behind his house, which is visible from Interstate 29.
City officials told Mace the sign violates city zoning laws and he has agreed to remove it.
City code only allows small political signs and those for home-based businesses in residential areas. Mace's sign is one of the largest ones city officials have encountered.
Mace says he didn't mean to break the law.
