That's good, but....
Why will the new speed-limit signs cost $137,000? After all, the city prints them in-house! Perhaps it would be cheaper to buy them from an efficient manufacturer?
It's nickel-and-dime stuff like this that just makes no sense to me.
Signs? Come on. How much does each one cost to make?
How much does each one cost to put in place?
