Bemidji to change name of Stoner Avenue; theft of street signs costs city $2,000 a year
"This has been an issue for a long time," said Craig Gray, director of public works/city engineer.
Gray was referring to the 15 "Stoner Avenue" signs that disappear each year from the street located south of Lake Bemidji.
The Bemidji City Council met in a work session Monday evening and unanimously voted to begin the process of changing the name of the Stoner Avenue Northeast and Stoner Avenue Southeast signs.
