WICHITA, Kan. — An expensive stone sign for Park City appears to have a few flaws that show up at night.
The sign is in the median of 61st Street North at the bottom of the I-135 northbound exit.
The stone sign looks nice in the day but when headlights hit the sign at night some flaws show.
The sign cost $34,300, part of a larger beautification project for Park City. Certain flaws can be seen, especially at night when headlights hit the sign.
Park City barber K.C. Crane said he's heard the complaints. Crane said the sign is important because some out-of-towners have told the mayor they weren't sure where Park City was.
"Finally they asked him is that over by the Quik Trip off the highway", said Crane. "Yeah that's right in the center of town. They didn't realize it was city of 12,000 people."
Park City Assistant City Administrator, Dana Walden, said the sign builder is going to fix the problem. "With any new project there can be a few glitches", said Walden. "And that's one small glitch in what we think is a really attractive project."
Walden said as with any project the last 10% of the payment for the sign is held until the city is satisfied the work has been done correctly.
Tom White with Heartstone, the sign maker, said a subcontractor may have created the flaws while welding. The Park City Inspector will meet with Heartsone Wednesday to go over how to fix the sign so it will look fine day and night.
