"The Mirage was able to learn firsthand about the installation of illuminated signs in Chicago. But it also learned something interesting about a different kind of sign - the nonilluminated variety. There are thousands of these signs across the city. None of them have city permits. The Mirage could not find anyone in City Hall who seems to know why. . ."

Mirage team discovers that no permits are needed for non-illuminated signage and no one seems to know why.
