New signs for county roads

Staff writer

All Marion County road signs will be replaced because many are missing or in poor condition.

County engineer Brice Goebel said emergency medical services director Travis Parmley has asked for replacement signs because missing and rotated signs confuse many drivers.

Goebel said signs along Mustang Rd. are a problem because people take down the signs for themselves.

“Is that a misdemeanor or a felony?” commission chairman Kent Becker asked.

From the audience, district Judge Michael Powers answered, “It depends on who you are,” drawing a round of chuckles.

County commissioners Monday approved purchase of road signs for $33,987.

Goebel said a gas utility has requested permission to mount a gas line on a county bridge. Commissioners asked Goebel to do more research and return to them with more information before a decision is made.
