At the Jan. 10 Cazenovia Town Board Meeting, a resolution was passed that shifted the responsibility of maintaining and controlling maintenance of "No Parking" signs, from Madison County to the town of Cazenovia.
A crew from the Town Highway Department surveyed the areas and removed some of the more obtrusive signs. Of the 85 that were initially installed, 35 "No Parking" signs were removed.
Each sign was created at the Madison County Highway Department for a cost of $42.32, including the post. The "No Parking" signs that were removed from the roads have been sent back to the county's highway department. Many of the posts have already been put to other use, and the signs are ready to be installed, wherever they will be needed.
Although many signs are still in place, it seems an equilibrium has been reached between the county, the town and the residents of East and North Lake roads. So for those who find themselves enjoying a scenic drive around the north end of the lake, take notice of the decrease in unsightly "No Parking" signs. Just don't park to look.
