Council Discusses Purple Octopus

Council Discusses Purple Octopus
WALLA WALLA -- It seems that new purple octopus mural is too much for downtown Walla Walla.

The city attorney told KEPR Action News the sign is four times the size of what a sign is allowed to be.

Meanwhile, the owner of "Inland Octopus" toy store says it's a mural -- not a sign.

The issue was raised at this week's city council meeting, and people spoke in favor of the big purple octopus.

Council will discuss the mural next month. The meeting is open to the public.
