Electric City welcome sign going out to bid


Electric City’s council voted Feb. 12 to go out to bid on a welcome sign to the city.

The sign would be placed at Electric City’s southern limits on SR-155 on the south side of Osborne Bay and would read “Welcome to Electric City,” and “Re-energize your recreation,” with the city’s logo suspended between basalt columns.

An earlier cost estimate for the sign from Graybeal Signs was $42,000.

The council discussed whether to have the sign framed by actual basalt columns or by aluminum made to look like rock columns and questioned how long actual basalt columns would last.
