If you noticed a change in scenery at the corner of railway street south and highway ten in downtown Boissevain, the change came by way of the community sign being taken down earlier this week. 

Chief Administrative Officer for Boissevain-Morton, Leo Poulin, says the old sign is down but Council is keeping the details of the design for the new sign under wraps

Council had been dealing with some structural issues with the previous sign and determined it was in extremely poor condition. They had considered repairing it but soon determined it was not a feasible plan.  

“The urgency to remove the sign at this point was in order for the new sign to be custom built with regards to the foundation,” explains Poulin.

“Unfortunately, in regards to the finance and the design of the new sign, we are not at liberty to disclose that this time,” he adds with a smile.  

Hopes were to have the new sign installed by July 1st, Canada Day, but most likely it will be revealed in mid to late summer, probably in August. 

We'll all just have to wait and see Boissevain's new sign design for downtown!
