The signs would be paid for by local companies in exchange for a sponsorship sign underneath the radar display.At an approximate cost of $10,000 per sign, Ergang says he has 10 companies that have expressed interest in sponsoring the signs. The City of Fort St. John would then be responsible for installation and maintenance of the signs.Director of Infrastructure and Capital Works, Victor Shopland, says it will cost the City $5,000 to $10,000 in maintenance costs each year. That cost did raise some concern among Council members.In the end, Council gave approval for staff to enter into an agreement with Koda Transport. Staff will also have discussions to see if the School District or any of the sponsors are willing to help with the yearly maintenance costs.Advertisement
