Consideration of Approval for Town Staff to Replace the Digital Sign at Town Hall Utilizing the Lake County Contract with Don Bell Signs


Parks and Recreation Department

Staff recommends approval to replace the digital sign at Town Hall by piggybacking off the Lake County contract with Don Bell Signs.


Town staff is seeking approval to replace the digital message board at Town Hall with a new double face full color 16MM Optec LED active area of 13.5 square feet. The original marquee sign installed at Town Hall in 2006 is no longer operational and is not cost-effective to repair. The price of the new sign is $18,221.00 and includes a one-year warranty and turn-key installation. Staff is also requesting to add a 60-month maintenance agreement for an additional $3,450.00, for a total cost of $22,171.00.

As message boards are essential to relaying information during the pandemic, Town staff will seek reimbursement for the cost of the sign through the Cares Act. There is no guarantee that the Town will be reimbursed, however, it is a possibility given the service that the sign offers the community. As stated in the title, staff will be piggybacking off the Lake County contract with Don Bell Signs.
