Each summer the Mill Street Bridge is lined with beautiful flower boxes – here is your chance to have your name displayed in support of Montgomery’s beautification.

Friend of the Village - $30 (New Sign) $25 (Re-Use Previous Sign)
For your donation, you can have your family name, business name, or personal message printed on a 4” x 22” sign which will be displayed along the Mill Street Bridge. (Addresses, Phone Numbers and Political ads are strictly prohibited.)
*If you want to change the message of a sign used in the past, you will need to apply for a new sign and pay the full amount.

Mayor’s Choice - $135 (Montgomery Businesses Only; Limited Quantity)
Beautify your business with the eye-catching Mayor’s Choice arrangement. For your $135 donation, you will receive a deluxe flower arrangement prepared by a floral professional. The arrangement consists of a variety of colorful and appealing annual flowers and decorative vines in a large planter, approximately 30 inches tall, delivered right to your office—all you do is water and enjoy! Additional planters are available at a discounted price of $110 each. To show our thanks for your support in beautifying Montgomery, your family name, business name, or personal message will be printed on a 4” x 22” sign which will be displayed along the Mill Street Bridge. (Addresses, Phone Numbers and Political ads are strictly prohibited.)

• All signs are displayed along the Mill Street Bridge in the spring and taken down in the fall.
• The Mayor’s Choice planters remain on display for the entire summer into early fall, at which time the Public Works Department will retrieve the planters for winter storage.
• All signs remain property of the Village and are stored for future use.
Space is limited and filled on a first come, first served basis. Deadline is May 7th or until all spots are filled; whichever occurs first.

FOR SAFETY REASONS, PLACING PERSONAL ITEMS ON THE BRIDGE OR BRIDGE SIGNS IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
This includes balloons, additional flowers, banners, etc.

Planters are designed and prepared by the floral professionals at Schaefer’s Greenhouse in Montgomery and are delivered to your business—all you do is water and enjoy! The planters remain on display for the entire summer into early fall; at that time, the Department of Public Works will retrieve the planters for winter storage.

Bridge signs are a 4” x 22” sign with a maximum of two lines with 20 characters and spaces per line available. Signs are placed between flower boxes along the Mill Street Bridge in the spring and taken down in the fall. All signs are stored for future use and cannot be sold back to participants of the program.

The order form for the flower planter program is now available; questions can be directed to Renee at (331) 212-9044.
