The future USS Somerset’s commander, Cole Hayes, has requested Somerset County road signs to be made for and sent to the ship, where they will be used to identify various hallways and areas onboard.
Somerset County Commissioner John Vatavuk asked each township and municipality in the county to purchase one road sign. The county will order the signs through U.S. Municipal Supply to get a volume discount, which will cost $30.25 per sign. Each municipality and township may choose either their own name or that of a popular roadway. Indian Lake has chosen Indian Lake Drive. Garrett picked the Garrett Shortcut. Windber picked both Windber and Ramblers Road.
Selections need to be made by January 31, 2013. To contact Commissioner Vatavuk, please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
