It pays to advertise.

The city of Aspen is now charging all businesses with outdoor sandwich-board signs an annual $65 permit fee.

According to the Aspen Daily News, some businesses have been allowed to have permanent sandwich board signs in city rights-of-way for free if a storefront is not easy to find.

City officials say businesses are being charged for the time it takes to process the permits.
