Spelling counts: Errors on signs cost county $4,000

Posted: Updated:
NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Spelling counts - and sometimes it costs money.

A suburban Philadelphia county was victim to an embarrassing misspelling on signage posted around the local community: the word "commissioners" with only one "m'' on 26 signs.

Montgomery County officials say it will take about 10 days and $4,000 to correct the error with adhesive labels.

The 6-foot-tall signs bear the county's website and the names of the three county commissioners. They were posted in parks, along the county trail system and in front of the courthouse several months ago.

The signs replaced out of date and mismatched signs around the county.

A county employee noticed the error and reported it to officials.
