Last week we ran photos of a couple of road signs in the area with misspelled street signs. This week we have a couple more oddities.
Belinda Sanderson noticed an odd thing while walking downtown last week. On several of the street signs, you can see where the red flannels should be hanging from the line, but someone has snatched them off! Or is there a plot to rid the town of its Red Flannels? A quick call to Cedar Springs Department of Public Works Manager Jerry Hall solved the mystery.
According to Hall, the Red Flannel symbol is a decal that was ordered specially to stick on the signs. “The red in decals fade faster than the rest of the sign,” explained Hall. He said that at $3.50 each, with four signs on each pole, they can’t afford to replace the decals right now. But they do have some spare decals to put on a new sign if one needs to be put up.
