Thanks to some local organizations and personal donations, the village of Stuart will be able to welcome you to their community. This is a feat the village has been working on for nearly a decade.
Village Clerk, Mark Stracke, felt that the community was missing out by not having a welcome sign. “Everyone has one, and we needed a welcome.”
The sign cost a total of $14,604 which was paid for by the village of Stuart, and will be reimbursed when the donations come in. So far, they have raised over half of the cost and will continue to ask for donations through advertisement. They also make money through tourism, which will also help pay for the sign.
The sign was scheduled to be finished in time for Stuart’s 4th of July celebration and is located at the east entrance to Stuart, north of Highway 20 by Stuart Concrete.
If you would like to help the community offset the cost of the sign, you drop off your donation at the Tri-County Bank, or you can can mail it.
