To all of the other stingy street departments who refuse to give away or sell their scrap street signs, take a lesson from Aurora. Tovar says: "Every once in a while someone, a resident or one of the workers for the city, will go, 'Hey, I noticed you made a new sign, what are you going to do with the old sign?' If they catch us in time, we'll hand them over."
