City supports welcome sign
By STU MERRY
The City of Garrison backs a proposal by the Garrison Chamber of Commerce to erect a sign on the west edge of Garrison, welcoming people to the community. The council took it one step further, supporting installing a similar sign on the east edge of Garrison.
At the regular monthly council meeting, Chamber President Marty Dahl asked the council’s permission to install a sign near the pump station on the west edge of Garrison. "It would be a welcome sign to the city," he said.
The chamber’s Executive Committee has been researching welcome signs since the first of the year, brainstorming ideas, and more recently, receiving proposals from sign companies.
At its most recent meeting, the committee agreed on a design that features an outline of the State of North Dakota and silhouette of Lake Sakakawea. Garrison is highlighted by a star. Home of Wally the Walleye would adorn the bottom of the sign, with the word Garrison in larger letters across the top. The sign would be lit.
