A grassroots effort could soon bring a new electronic sign to the city of Deer Creek, according to the New York Mills Dispatch.

The Deer Creek City Council heard from Dick Malone of the Deer Creek Lions Club last week about a plan to bring the electronic sign to the community. The sign would be used for promoting community events, announcements and to promote the community.

Several business have made contributions, but funds for purchasing a new sign are still short of the group’s goal.

One sign the group is looking to purchase is estimated to cost $25,000, and more money would need to be raised prior to moving forward with the project.

Malone asked the city if they would be willing to donate money to help with the purchase. The Lions group said it was willing to make a donation, but the amount is still unknown.

The council announced they would discuss the matter at an upcoming meeting.
