Not a fan of city hall’s new sign

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: New sign for the city

Wow, a new sign spell­ing out HAMIL­TON in front of City Hall, and it will light up, too. While the mayor says it won’t cost the tax­pay­ers any­thing I can’t wait to see what $250K to $300K gets you these days when the de­sign is re­vealed. What I don’t get is why any­one would put a very ex­pen­sive sign down­town to show all of us who live here what out city is named. Shouldn’t we all know that by now? Wouldn’t it be bet­ter if the sign was po­si­tioned at a city en­try point?

It looks like one of those use­less “legacy” projects. And, since this is sup­posed to be free of cost for the tax­pay­ers I hope the peo­ple who are pay­ing for the de­sign and in­stal­la­tion will also pay for the elec­tric­ity re­quired. Mike Lacroix, Hamil­ton
