Elizabethtown Supervisor Margaret Bartley said the resolution was about more than just providing added advertisement for local businesses.
“I live on Route 9 near Route 73 in New Russia and people stop in the middle of the night at my house to ask where to find gas or for directions because there are no signs, so it can become a public safety issue as well,” Bartley said.
