The city commission voted on Jan. 19 to spend $101,165 on four rock monuments, in an effort to lure travelers into the city.

However, the local newspaper reported Thursday that the public flooded city officials with negative reaction, mostly objecting to paying for the project from a sales tax fund that is intended for infrastructure improvements.

City Manager Matt Zimmerman says the commission decided Wednesday to postpone the project, but he says the signs could still be built in the future.

The city has already spent about $36,000 and has signed contracts with designers and others involved in the project.
