SIGN DISCUSSION: Tom Nimsgern from Lakeland Sign was here to lay out the specs for the new sign on Hwy 51. He said it was a good thing that we waited because the signs now include graphics at no extra cost and the double sided sign actually cost less than it did. The 61.5”(vertical) and 111”(horizontal) sign will have a lit cabinet, and we’ll get prices for a 16 and a 22mm Optec amber or full color message center. We’ll also get the price for LED and fluorescent lights. All we need is a DSL line and we can change the message from anywhere. The Plan Commission needs to approve it and we’ll make price decisions at the next meeting.
