VILLAGE OF FLORIDA - As part of its continuing push to stamp its identity on the minds of residents, folks throughout the region and anyone who happens to drive through, the village is redoing about 800 street signs, and the public has a chance to get in on the action. Starting immediately, the village is replacing its white-and-black street signs with green-and-white or blue-and-white ones, and on Friday, Florida's supervisor unveiled the village’s “Purchase a Street Sign” campaign. That buy-in opportunity, which Supervisor Dan Depew calls unique in New York state, could net the town about $4,000.
Here’s how it works: If you want one of the old white-and-black signs, you pay $30 and it will be delivered to your house. As the village’s website puts it, “Once a WHITE sign is purchased, the Village will replace the street sign with the new GREEN sign or BLUE sign and deliver the sign you purchased to your home within fifteen (15) days.”
“Act fast,” the website says. “There are a limited amount of street signs available!”
