I’m a resident of Carthage and like to bike and walk around town. Often I am stopped by people looking for the various county offices.

With over a dozen county offices here in Carthage, why doesn’t the county invest in some nice signage to direct people around when they come to the county seat? Being lost is no fun, and it can also be dangerous to other drivers.

As someone who owns and operates a business in downtown Carthage, I second this suggestion. We're constantly being asked where to courthouse, the tax office, the DA's office, etc. are.

Of course, this begs the question as to whether anyone would actually read the signs if they put them up.
