Peabody board considers Oliveira's injunction

(Continued)

It’s the second time in recent months that Whitehead has handed down a decision second-guessing Peabody officials. He overruled the City Council in allowing the Lowell Street billboard, including a more than 90-foot pole that was eventually placed in the wrong spot. The pole remains, though the judge subsequently upheld a city decision to forbid its use. Efforts to settle that dispute are ongoing.

City officials had harsh words for Whitehead then, with Councilor Jim Liacos speculating at one point that the judge would have ruled otherwise if the billboard was erected near his house. In this matter, however, when asked about the Oliveira’s ruling, councilors and board members declined comment.
