CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich.—  The Cascade Township Library’s old, antiquated sign is getting replaced.

John Alcorn, President of Alcam Signs & Lighting Inc., and Friends of the Cascade Library member Paula Rowland began staking out space for a new electronic sign Monday, November 11.  Rowland says the LED message board was ordered Monday and the concrete base for the sign will be installed within the next couple of weeks.  The LED board is being built by Electro-Matic Products, Inc.  in Farmington Hills.  Alcam Signs & Lighting, Inc., located in Wyoming, will be putting the sign together.

The new electronic sign is being donated by Friends of the Cascade Library.  The organization, which is approximately 300 families strong in Cascade Township, is funding the $20,000 project through its used book sales.

 Friends of  the Cascade Library hope to have the new sign in and functional within the next four to eight weeks.  Township manager Ben Swayze says he’s lining up the necessary permits for the sign, which will abide by the Township’s strict electronic sign rules.  The township will cover the cost of powering the new sign through the community’s existing library millage.
