A great idea to mark old school sites within the M.D. with a special sign, comes with a hefty price tag.

Reeve Larry Spilak says with about sixty sites identified, the project may be cost prohibitive.

Spilak says the proposed signs range in price from $450 to $750 each.

Councillor Barb Castell, who chairs the Historic Committee, admits the $40,000 price tag isn't in this year's budget.

Rather than abandon what looks to be an expensive project, Castell says they'll look for alternate sources of funding including possible grants and donations. 

Castell says it is a 'wish list' item but one that the Committee would love to see come to fruition.
