The search continues for a BELLEVILLE sign, similar to the TORONTO sign in Toronto’s city hall square, where people stand beside the letters and have their pictures taken.
These signs have become tourist attractions across Canada and in many cities around the world.
At its budget meeting in the spring, Belleville city council decided to spend $40,000 on a plastic-metal clad five-foot sign.
The idea was it would be mobile and moved to various sites and events, lit up, and ready for Canada Day celebrations.
Councillor Garnet Thompson says there have been hold ups, and the issue may go back to the capital budget session in the fall.
He says the city wants to look at more pricing submissions.

Thompson says the committee has been looking at ideas from other cities with such signs, including Kingston, and considering the options.
