More Hollywood supergraphics coming down

Deputies to City Attorney Carmen Trutanich announced Friday that two big Hollywood supergraphic signs, one standing an estimated 11 stories high near Highland Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard, were being removed after the billboard company was sent a cease-and-desist letter. Six other supergraphics have come down on Hollywood Boulevard since Trutanich began the crackdown that led to Kayvan Setareh, one of the sign posters, being held in jail over a weekend on $1 million bail. Chief deputy William W. Carter says 20 cease-and-desist letters have gone out over the last week, giving companies three days to remove unpermitted signs.
