Statement by Mayor William Peduto on Mount Washington Sign

PITTSBURGH, PA (July 31, 2014) - Mayor William Peduto issued this statement after a decision by the Bayer Corporation to remove its name from an iconic lighted sign on Mount Washington:

"I can see why Bayer doesn't want to be identified with the Mount Washington sign. Lamar has a responsibility to maintain the sign and it hasn't done anything to it in 20 years. It's an eyesore for the Mount Washington neighborhood and the whole city. The city will work with Lamar to restore the sign, but needed upgrades to the appearance of the structure and its landscaping need to happen as well.”
