BARRE – The Town of Barre will soon have new welcome signs at the main entrances of the community with two on Route 98 and two on Route 31A.

Terry’s Signs in Elba finished the first 5-foot-long sign that includes a barn and a message that Barre is “A Right-to-Farm Community.”

The current signs are looking worn out, said Town Supervisor Sean Pogue. Barre paid about $500 for each of the four new signs.

That doesn’t include the cost for new frames that will be built by the Highway Department.

The new signs are on a thin aluminum. They will be reflective at night with the letters of “BARRE.”
