The outdoor sign, featuring Baywatch star David Hasselhoff, is a violation of the town's zoning regulations on signs, according to a report in the Fairfield Citizen.

Cut-out Sign Featuring David Hasselhoff Yanked

A cut-out sign promoting an iced beverage outside the store at the corner of Post and Beach roads has reportedly been yanked after the store was informed it was a violation of local zoning laws.

According to a report in the Fairfield Citizen, the store took down the sign, featuring Baywatch star David Hasselhoff, after learning it was illegal.

"They can put promotional signs in their windows, but if it's outside, it's a sign that falls under our regulations," Assistant Planning Director James Wendt told the Citizen.

According to the report, there is an increasing number of illegal signs popping up around town — however Wendt said the P&Z department lacks the staff to carry out continuous enforcement of sign regulations.
