The "Ye Olde $17,849" Question

An update to my $17,849 street sign post, which was a comment to this June 2nd, 2009 City Council Proceeding.

While reading about the Red Brick district’s 100th anniversary, I forgot that the historic district already has new signs in the blue motif. Looking at the Brandon Industries website, these “Ye Olde fashioned” street signs cost an average of $800. So, if you do the math: $17,849.00 divided by $800 (the average cost) = 22.3 signs/posts.

22.3 signs/posts aren’t enough to decorate the entire City of Long Beach. I am guessing these new street signs will be used for either the business district along Park Avenue, the walks or just in the west end. I have to be foolish to think every single sign post in Long Beach would be updated. Of course if anybody knows what’s going on, I would appreciate any information 🙂
