The new updated highway signs were presented to the Board at its July meeting. Two sizes were presented, a 5 foot by 10 foot sign and a 4 foot by 8 foot sign. The 5×10 was approximately $1,100, while the 4×8 sign was approximately $740 plus installment. The Board was discussing six signs, three coming into Fairfax and three coming into Winthrop. Board Director Casey Prochniak thought that the 4×8 sign would be adequate. Director Drew Schmidt asked what the installment cost would be. Superintendent Jeff Horton did not have information on those costs. Two ideas were presented, put a limit on the installment cost or table to next month. The Board chose to table the decision to next month.
