Marengo’s $40,000 sign

To the Editor:

May I suggest the first message on Marengo’s soon-to-be installed $40,000 community sign: “Welcome to Marengo. Please watch out for unfilled potholes, sunken sewer grates, unreplaced street signs, and a number of other worthy projects $40,000 could be spent on. But hey, doesn’t the sign look great?”
