MITCHELL – Davison County officials say that vandalism to county road signs is costing taxpayers about $4,000 a year.

County Highway Superintendent Rusty Weinberg says the damage is particularly bad in northwestern townships. He says the worst offenses have occurred near Loomis, with several more in the Ethan area.

The Mitchell Daily Republic reports that some signs have been ripped from the ground, metal post and all, by vandals.

Weinberg says the missing signs could cause traffic accidents.

A typical 30-by-30-inch sign costs nearly $50, and larger signs cost about $70. Davis County Chief Deputy Steve Harr says deputies automatically arrest people found with a road sign. He says some people use the signs as wall decorations. The punishment is up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
