Ms. Browell (Darlene) approached the table and proceeded to explain the loss of parking space in front of her restaurant along Genesee St. She also explained that her customers began parking in the Byrne Dairy parking spaces and that the owner of the Byrne Dairy would be upset and she would come into the restaurant and become disruptive because of her anger.

This is the signage she would like to be able to keep.
