New signs to promote Stettler

New signs to show the service clubs and churches “Serving Stettler” are scheduled to go up on highway entrances

New signs to show the service clubs and churches “Serving Stettler” are scheduled to go up on highway entrances by the end of this year.

At its regular meeting last week, Town of Stettler council approved a staff recommendation to increase the budget to $40,081.94 and utilize $25,000 granted from Canadian Badlands as part of the town’s project to erect four new entrance signs that were erected last year.

“We’re hoping to get them up this fall,” said Leann Graham, planning and development officer for the town.

A powder coating for $9,714.18 to help protect the signs has added to the cost, as she has consulted with Alberta Transportation on the project.

“It’s a good investment,” said Mayor Dick Richards.

The signs will replace other signs that have become dilapidated over the years.

“I have been working on this for some time and we have scaled it back,” Graham said.

“The benefit of powder coating protects the structure from nature’s elements while increasing the longevity of the investment.”

Each sign will feature eight spaces for service clubs and their logos, and another large space for a listing of the churches in town.

Service clubs will pay a onetime fee of $200, while churches will be charged $46 each.

Organizations and churches will also be welcome to donate further to support any further costs of to maintain and protect the signs.
