Douglas Binderup, President of Binderup Investments, Inc. says, “This is a unique opportunity for the City of Oroville, and I applaud the city for their enterprising spirit. This sign is truly a win-win situation, where in addition to giving local businesses the opportunity to advertise in a state-of-the-art format, it will also boost the local economy and provide the City of Oroville with a steady stream of revenue.”
Construction on the new digital sign could begin as early as May, and will take between 3-4 months to complete.
