Pay to Play.
While the jury is out on who overlooked the fact that a $300,000 sign installation on State Road 31 had “Westfield” for both the north AND south sides of the steel structure, the
Carmel Board of Public Works voted last week to pay $64,125 to change “Westfield” to “Carmel” for southbound drivers to avoid confusion. Because the sign is in Carmel, the City did approve the renderings provided by the City of Westfield which showed all sides of the signage; however, Carmel officials contend they had no idea that “Westfield” would be both welcoming and bidding motorists adieu. Now, all is well … blessed are the peacemakers and the sign makers.
