A recent accident involving a DeKalb EMS unit may require that the planned sign at the county complex be downscaled.At the regular meeting of the mayor and county commission last week, Mayor Mike Foster told the commissioners that an abbreviated version of the planned sign might have to be erected until the county can better assess what replacement of the ambulance might cost.“We had an ambulance involved in an accident recently, and it’s the one we just put a new engine in, and we expected to be able to use it for a long time. The box has already been remounted twice, and by law we can’t remount it again. We are going to have to look at this and see what we have to do.”The mayor said that there is some concern that the original sign may not be safe, and plans may have to be modified to exclude the reader board from the bottom of the sign for now.“We have a bid for a little more than $15,000 to replace the posts and the top two sections of the sign.
