Kyle hosts online street sign auction


KYLE – A classic decoration at fraternity houses and teenagers’ bedrooms, they are essential in helping us all get around. But like everything else, street signs don’t last forever.

The city of Kyle, however, is holding a unique sale that will give retired signs a new lease on life  — an online auction to sell retired city street signs that have accumulated over the years, giving all a chance to own a little piece of Kyle this Holiday season. 

Public Works Director Harper Wilder said that signs are returned to the public works department after they are retired or when streets are renamed. Rather than sitting and gathering dust, Wilder said,  “We’d rather them be offered to the public to own a small piece of Kyle.”

The online auction will open at noon on Wednesday, Dec. 16 and close at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 18.  The auction will be held online at The minimum bid will be $30 for each sign. 

Auction items can be seen online, but to place a bid, participants need to create an account with credit card information. Bids can be placed at any time on the website. When the auction closes,  the highest bidder on an item will be charged automatically. Items that require shipping will be charged separately for shipping. 

Local pick-up will be on Monday, Dec. 21 and Tuesday, Dec. 22 from 4 to 6:30 p.m. or by appointment at Kyle City Hall, 100 W. Center Street. All signs not purchased during the auction will be listed on the Kyle Style Online Store.
