Fortuna city council votes on LED sign at Rohner Park

FORTUNA- An LED sign is sparking some debate in the Friendly City.

Fortuna City Council will vote Monday on whether to approve a plan to construct an led sign at the park.

The sign would be used to advertise park programs and events. It would cost $11,000. So far, the parks and recreation commission has received $7,500 in pledges.

 For the past two weeks residents had the chance to weigh in online with 12 writing in support and 5 in opposition. Those opposed say the new sign would detract from the city's small town character. But those in support say the addition would be helpful in keeping the community informed.
