MILLS 50 ART BOX BY LEE VANDERGRIFT, PHOTO BY DANNY GARCIA
Vain Nightclub (Facebook | Website) is at the center of an uproar in Mills 50 after photos were posted on the Mills 50 Main Street District Facebook page showing an electric box covered with a number of fliers promoting events at the Downtown club.
Bungalower spoke with Freddy LeGall, manager of Vain Nightclub, who informed us that he is using a third party business to promote their club nights for them. We requested the name of the company he uses but he has yet to respond. LeGall did reveal that a number of other downtown venues were also clients of the unnamed poster company.
LeGall suggested that they are considering sending someone with their vendor in the future, to supervise their work and “ensure they are not violating any rules.”
The unnamed company has also been posting fliers on Kissimmee’s art boxes as well, as shown in a photo below, posted by a nearby resident on Vain’s Facebook page. We’ve blurred out the promotional message on the posters.
According to City Code, posters are considered signs. All signs that are erected without approval of the Planning and Development Department are considered unlawful and are subject to removal. Generally applied to larger objects, the City could assign the cost of removal of the posters to Vain or their contracted vendor, in the form of a lien, according to Section 39-6 of the City Charter.
