The Bristol Village Board has purchased new “welcome to” signs that will acknowledge the municipality’s new status as a  village.

The board approved the purchase of 10 signs at $167 per sign from Sass Graphics of  Salem.

The signs will be placed at the current locations for the welcome to the town of Bristol signs at:

  • The east and west end of Highway C.
  • At Highway Q and U.
  • At Stateline Road and Deep Lake Road.

The board discussed perhaps placing new signs on Highway 45 and using the remaining signs as replacements if the others are damaged.

A representative of Sass at Monday’s meeting said the screen-printed, reflective signs should be long lasting. A quote document form the company says they will be guaranteed for seven years.

Village President Rich Gossling also proposed the idea of  in the future purchasing a sign that could promote village events and other info with a lighted marquee crawl. He said he felt the Highway 45 and 83rd Street corner would be a good location, but some other board members felt it might be too distracting there.

The board took no action on Gossling’s proposal.
