Have you seen the new Quakertown borough logo street signs? I'd love to know why we are replacing perfectly good signs, and at what cost?

I think you will find that the federal government is requiring new signs with larger letters. They aren't paying for them, just making us pay. Another unfunded mandate.

The new street signs will help vision-impaired people and help improve safety. I would like to see embedded reflectors for all major and secondary roadways.

What you said made sense until I did some checking. The mandate was cancelled and towns have been told to replace signs as needed (no deadline). According to the article the expense will fall on the cities and state.(Well, basically the tax payers)
