Property owners in Minocqua will begin seeing new address signs starting next week.
In February of this year, the town board approved a nearly $200,000 bid for the signs and their installation from Lange Enterprises of Oconomowoc.
That was two years after rejecting two bids for the signs and then the issue was relatively dormant until former town chairman Don Gauger brought it up at a December town board meeting.
The cost for the signs will be assessed to property owners on their tax bills.
At the July 16 town board meeting, a standard address sign ordinance was adopted and public works director Mark Pertile said then he believed the signs were to be delivered toward the end of this month.
In a press release issued Monday, town chairman Mark Hartzheim stated sign installation would begin next week.
Approximately 85% of the address signs are expected to be installed by this fall and the rest of them next year.
