(Des Moines, Iowa) -- The Des Moines Landmark Review board is recommending a the sign above a popular malt shop be designated a local landmark.
The pink and blue neon sign above Snookies Malt Shop was damaged last fall when a car crashed into the sign pole. A replacement pole is already up, and the sign is being repaired.
The city council will take up the recommendation, and Snookies owner Jim Hunter says he doesn't expect much debate on making the sign an official city landmark. Hunter says the sign should be back up by late July.
