SANATOGA PA – Having heard about positive results received from digital sign publicity outside the Lower Pottsgrove municipal building on Buchert Road, and near the Ringing Hill Fire Company hall on White Pine Lane, volunteers for the Sanatoga Fire Company on East High Street have determined electronic signage might help them, too. Earlier this month they asked for, and won, township commissioners’ approval to erect a lighted message sign of their own.
Assistant Fire Chief Derek Dry told the Board of Commissioners the company’s proposed double-sided, “V-shaped” sign would wrap around the flagpole at the front of the Sanatoga fire hall at 2222 E. High. It was designed by Sceptre Signs of Stowe, and board members reviewed drawings of it and its positioning as Dry spoke. “That’s pretty good looking,” board President Bruce Foltz commented.
“I take it this also means the roll-out, roll-in sign (hand-lettered) sign will go away?,” Commissioner Robert Mohollen asked with a smile. Those in the boardroom audience who were fire company members laughed. “Yup,” Dry replied confidently. The movable sign, to which Mohollen referred and which the digital versions will replace, has been a fixture announcing upcoming events outside the firehouse for years.
In approving a new digital signage law last year, commissioners included provisions that exempted the municipality and its two fire companies from the law’s regulations. The notice given by the Sanatoga company of its desire to erect a sign was probably superfluous, but the courtesy offered to commissioners during their Jan. 3 meeting seemed to be appreciated. All agreed the company should proceed.
