By the end of this year, Adams County must replace all its "stop" signs on rural roads with signs that are more reflective, according to county Highway Superintendent Mark Mitchel.
He told the county commissioners on Monday that he is working with the Butler, Fairman, and Seufert engineering and consulting firm in Indianapolis to seek a $50,000 grant to buy and erect the new "stop" signs.
A local matching amount of $5,000 to $15,000 will be required if the grant is achieved, Mitchel reported.
The requirement for new and more reflective "stop" signs is a statewide mandate for all counties.
