ARLEY - The new electronic sign in front of Meek Elementary School will not only provide information for the town of school events, but will also be a small source of income for the school.
The sign was installed in October, with bids the previous month, according to Principal Heather Tucker.
“We had started researching everything for different ones. We finally bidded out. Then we had to find money,” she mentioned.
