WILLIAMS, Ariz. - Williams Clean and Beautiful Committee is updating the look of their roadway advertising signs, in an effort to allow more exposure for local business owners.

Currently, Williams Clean and Beautiful is revamping all previous signs and will allow four larger business signs on each roadside board.

"A lot of people weren't happy," Williams Clean and Beautiful committee member Carol Glassburn said about the signs, which are located throughout Williams main road entries. "They were too small, and so we did some research and it takes a long time to get everyone together, so the reason we are doing this is to make better quality advertising, because that is the only signage available in town."

The new size of the sign will by 36 inches by 24 inches. Annual space rental will cost $200 per year, which according to Glassburn will make a world of difference in the quality of advertising.

"Right now we have 25 existing signs," Glassburn said. "We have approximately 64 spaces rented, but the signs are just not up yet. We want to open this up and give every business the opportunity to get involved."

Monies garnered from the project will go back to the Clean and Beautiful committee, in order to fund the popular bi-annual clean up days and other events.

All new signs must be approved by the chamber and small lettering such as addresses and phone numbers are not allowed.

"They are meant to be logo signs, not business card signs," Glassburn said, adding the space will be on a first come, first serve basis.

For more information or to rent an advertising space, contact Williams-Grand Canyon Chamber of Commerce Information Specialist Pimi Bennett at (928) 635-0273, ext. 203. The deadline to apply for a maximum of two signs is Sept. 19. After that date, the chamber will release the space to business owners who require more.

Cut off from what Ron? Back up generators need fuel? Really? Unless there is a transmission line from the turbines, and a sub station, I don't think they can help with whatever you are talking about. Feed for what? Your lawn, or your horse? Yes it takes money to operate a pool, did anyone think it didn't? I see you have a lot of questons, but they probably shouldn't have been asked on this thread. Try to keep it on topic.

Ramblin thoughts... Not to sound paranoid but i wonder how long Williams can go if cut off? Back up generators need fuel. Mabe those big wind turbine things would help out the town?ok dont die laughing. Does anyone here sell feed anymore?
It was sad when the pool closed.I guess the cost of keeping it open wasnt thought out well.(city)

It will really benefit the confused and lost tourist. Let's make their journey a bit easier. Rent or buy a place to help our business and to help our fellow tourist.

The idea behind these is pretty good, but I really have to say, let's get the ball rolling on all of those signs that aren't up. It really looks awkward having these massive blue signs all over the place, with each one only having one or two (and in some cases ZERO) advertising signs on them. There was a pretty decent up-front cost for these signs, so seeing them sit empty seems like a waste of money in a tight economy for our city. Let's hope the new size will get these spaces sold and some of that money recouped.

This is a great idea and way to make a little money to put to a good cause.
