LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. -- A Lee's Summit pizza place gets to keep its historic sign if it makes a few changes.

City officials Tuesday told the owner of Funhouse Pizza he could keep his towering historic sign by the road under one condition: he has to cut it down by 10 feet. That means lowering it to be 18 feet tall.

Owner Jim Dingman told FOX 4 it was a compromise that will cost him $5,000. But it's one he's happy with after city officials initially told him he would have to remove it all together.

They said it violated a city ordinance that prohibits pole signs. The sign has been there since 1972, but the new code applied to it once the property switched ownership last year.
