EARLTON – Earlton will be getting new municipal welcome signs.
The old signs were becoming faded and worn and Armstrong Township wanted to replace them ahead of its Centennial celebrations next year.
At the September 23 regular meeting, council approved the purchase of two signs from Northern Signs.
The signs are eight-foot by eight-foot reflective billboards, each costing $1,450 that will sit atop a two-structure frame. The frames cost $750 apiece.
“The total (for the project) would be $4,400 before HST,” Mayor Jean Marc Boileau, who also sits on the Centennial Committee, told council.
An installation date is still to be determined, he noted.
STOP SIGNS APPROVED
Also at the Sept. 23 meeting, council approved a bylaw to erect stop signs at the intersection of 10th Street West and Sixth Avenue.
There were speeding concerns in that area of Earlton with cars entering and leaving the town and council feels the best option to combat the issue is to install stop signs.
