Six new signs put up last fall to welcome visitors to Brandon are missing a crucial component and will need to be fixed in spring.

In an update posted to the city's website, Economic Development Brandon says that the signs were supposed to use reflective materials so that the word "Brandon" could be seen at night — but the sign company forgot. The error wasn't noticed until all the signs had been installed, and cold weather made it impossible to immediately fix.

Replacement of the text with reflective materials is to occur in early spring, as soon as the weather allows.

Four of the signs are about 12 feet high, and were placed near Kemnay on Highway 1A, on Veterans Way and both north and south of the city on Highway 10.Two larger signs, standing about 20 feet high, are located on the Trans-Canada Highway, east and west of the city.

The signs were erected in highway ditches and aren't allowed to be lit up.
