A commissioner recognized city staff during a recent meeting for addressing what she says is an ongoing problem regarding signs being broken by individuals across Orlando.
During Monday’s meeting of the Orlando City Council, District 4 Commissioner Patty Sheehan praised the city’s risk management department for their efforts in fixing broken signs around the community.
According to Sheehan, the risk management department brought in over $2.7 million in recouped damages last year from “property damage and worker’s compensation.” She took special note of broken signs that she says have been sprouting up everywhere.
“Signs keep getting hit in our neighborhoods,” said Sheehan. “I know Thornton Park’s got hit, College Park’s been hit.”
Remnants of broken signs are a frequent sighting in certain sections of the city. Whether the result of accidents, vandalism, or neglect, broken signs can be seen across main thoroughfares in multiple parts of downtown and the surrounding communities.
