Fundraising goal not met as deadline approaches to refurbish old U-Haul sign

JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – The future of a new sign for the Johnson City downtown area remains uncertain as Johnson City commission could vote to demolish the former U-Haul sign.

The Johnson City Development Authority fought to save the sign and revealed what it would look like once it was redesigned.

The price tag for the project is $88,000.

City leaders gave the authority until June 1 to raise the cash and officials say they still lack around $6,000 to $7,000 in the fundraising effort to start the project.

City leaders are expected to address this topic Thursday evening.
