After standing for 20 years on what is now Fire Station 31 property next to the Woodinville post office, the Clear Channel billboard was removed last week. The WF&R Board of Fire Commissioners decided in January to terminate the lease with Clear Channel, owners of the billboard. Under the terms of the lease, the billboard was removed at no cost to the fire district.
