The Benton Franklin Health District board, comprised of Benton and Franklin county commissioners, voted 5-0 Wednesday to reverse an earlier decision allowing the boards to go up with the district's name on the advertisements, The (Kennewick, Wash.) Tri-City Herald reported Thursday.
The Yakima Health District, which would have paid for the billboards with money left over from its own identical campaign, said the ads will not go up without support from the Benton Franklin Health District.
The Benton Franklin board had voted unanimously April 20 to approve the boards but the decision was reversed after complaints from residents who said they found the content of the advertisements to be in poor taste.
