Misspelled Road Signs May Be Sold

TAMPA, Fla., (UPI) — Officials in a Florida city are considering selling old Spanish street signs that are scheduled to be replaced due to a misspelling.

The Tampa City Council voted to change the signs for Seventh Avenue from “La Setima” to “La Septima” after hearing from residents who explained the latter is the correct Spanish spelling for “The Seventh” and the council will now vote Thursday to decide whether the old signs will go on sale to the public, the Tampa Bay Times reported Thursday.

Council Chairman Charlie Miranda, who was the only council member to oppose the spelling change, proposed the scheme to sell the signs, which were put in place in 1998.

“I think you’ll be surprised what someone will pay for an old sign,” Miranda said. “If, legally, I can be a bidder, I will bid.”
