The City Council has approved $45,000 to go toward replacing local tourism wayfinding signs that faded within a year after they were put up.
Kim White, who heads the River City Company, said it will raise $66,628 to complete the needed funds for the new signage.
John VanWinkle, city traffic engineer, said the existing poles and mounts will be used, but new signage will be necessary.
He said, "The new signs will be a lot more visible - even in the evening hours."
White said there will be a warranty on the new signs that they will last at least 12 years.
They will have reflective coating to help preserve them.
