Fort Thomas City Signs Are Designed

Renderings obtained by Fort Thomas Matters from a bid dated July, 20 2016 completed by Elsmere Ironworks shows the mock-up for what the new city signs will look like. FTM file. 

In June, Fort Thomas Matters reported that the city's Renaissance Board had asked council to approve a purchase of new city signage that would not only welcome people and residents to the city, but also inform them of what's happening in Fort Thomas.

Constructed out of black iron with a military script font, each permanent sign will have a place to hang thinner, stop-sign like material, easily changeable, advertising different events.

The board was hoping to have the signs in place by the end of the summer, but City Administrative Officer, Ron Dill said it'll likely be after the first of the new year.

"We are expecting the submittal of sample sign for review by city in next couple of weeks. If approved, they will complete remainder of order," he said.

Bids were requested because the expenditure was over $20,000 and Elsmere Ironworks won the bid at $26,883.92.

That will include four custom wrought iron signs, approximately 6x12' and four signs 5x6'. The larger signs were bid at $3,742.20 while the smaller signs cost $2,978.78.

If the sample sign is signed off on by the city, the remaining signs will be constructed. The total price of the bid would not include tax, installation or delivery.

The larger signs will stand 12 feet tall. FTM file.
