Q:When will OCCC replace the new restroom signs that are missing a required apostrophe? They read MENS RESTROOM and WOMENS RESTROOM. How much will it cost?

A: We developed a project for campus signage. The campus project signage had certain specifications and review processes. The review process of how the signs were to be developed, where they are to be placed, what they are to say — all of those things have been reviewed. The issue with the [apostrophes] on the restroom was not addressed in the printing of those inserts. So it was an oversight on the part of the contractor which they are making corrections to and they will change out those inserts when they are received from their provider at no cost.
