NZZ reports:

This time, the town is giving the alien its marching orders. Local by-laws set out strict conditions about what is allowed and not allowed on all buildings given the multitude of shops and restaurants all vying for the tourist business.

Gruyère’s mayor Christian Bussard says that all the shopkeepers might want to start hanging objects on outside walls, and this would ruin the town’s appearance.
