All in a day's work for a street-sign maker

Ten questions for City of Aurora, Illinois, worker Javier Tovar, who creates many of the street signs and displays around town.

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."

Would I be able to write a guest post on your blog? I love street signs too, especially when I think they are humorous or if they have a person's name that I know.

If you would allow me to write a guest post please contact me at Kyle@seota.com. Thank you!
