New Street Signs Approved


As the city councillor responsible for the portfolio of Toponmy, I was pleased to move a motion at the last council meeting to approve a quotation for new street signs  to be installed throughout the city. They will look like the sign we unveiled when the new Irving Layton Avenue was dedicated. The order has finally been placed with the company and we expect delivery within the next two months. Soon after I was elected, Mayor Anthony Housefather and I took some time to drive through the city and inspect our signs. We found most to be in poor condition. In addition, there was no common format. Many of these signs have been up for 50, perhaps even 80 years. Dare I say 100? It was high time we replace each and every one of them. Councillor Steven Erdelyi and I are now talking about holding a silent auction for the old signs. No doubt some people might find this appealing. I would like to commend our staff, notably City Manager Ken Lerner, Director of Public Works and Urban Planning David Tordjman, Public Affairs and Communications Director Darryl Levine, Traffic Engineer Charles Senekal and Purchasing and Contracts Director Elissa Laxer for their hard work in finally making this dossier a reality. Yes, this is a complicated procedure.
