DARKE COUNTY – Drivers will soon see new road signs popping up around the county.
Darke County Commissioners on Monday approved a fund transfer of $8,500 from the county’s consultant services fund to the county engineer’s fund for the purchase of the signs.
The $8,500 is a fund advance that will be coming back to the county from a grant, said county engineer Jim Surber. The total cost of signage is $9407.68, which reflects the purchase of 404 signs, including 65 stop signs, 95 four-way-stop placards, 5 yield signs, plus a variety of other signs including school bus stop ahead and church entrance signs, for example.
The signs are ordered from a company in Osborn, Ohio.
Work will begin in early spring, Surber said.
