Culver Town Council Discusses Placement of Electronic Sign

A new electronic sign needs placement in Culver and the Culver Town Council members may have found the right spot for it.

Marshall County was previously announced as a recipient of a $150,000 grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs to install electronic billboards in each community that will deliver community information about the county’s response to COVID-19 as well as resources available to residents.  Following the pandemic, the billboards will be used to promote events happening in communities throughout Marshall County in addition to localized information through tourism organizations. 

Town Manager Jonathan Leist said it was initially planned as a Regional Stellar Communities Designation project, but it will be done through this funding.  Leist said the placement of Culver’s sign would work best at the Culver Community School Corporation property on State Road 10.  The school would be able to promote some activities on the sign as well. 

An interlocal agreement will be presented for the project as the construction date gets closer. 

The council agreed to place the sign on the school’s property on State Road 10 pending the approval of the Culver Community School Corporation.
