There will be a new sign over the Route 11 exit into Austintown, to welcome people into the township.

A mockup of the sign shows an arch surrounded by landscaping, flowerbeds, and stone.

The project will cost the township about $40-thousand dollars.

Trustees voted to approve the project 2-to-1. The idea was proposed by Trustee Steve Kent.

Trustee Robert Santos voted against the idea, saying that it isn't wise to put that much money into signs when there are more pressing projects.
