Street signs in the Eastgate neighborhood in Ceres have become so faded that some people are using a GPS to find their way around.

“The street signs are faded you can’t even see what they say,” said resident Melissa Freeman.

If you are not from the neighborhood, it is even harder to get around.

“I try to have friends here. It gets frustrating that people can’t find their way here that easy,” resident Anthony Vargas said Monday.

The city of Ceres says 119 signs are in bad shape.

For a neighborhood that is only 10 years old, that sounds like a lot.

“I mean I have only been here a year and a half, but they have been in real bad shape since I’ve been here,” said Freeman.

The City of Ceres says they’ve recently placed orders for new ones, but could not say what took so long and why they chose now to replace them.

The city says they expect to get the new signs sometime this month.

    Follow the money. Identify the relationship between the sign vendor and the person who approved the vendor’s bid; compare the bid specifications materials quality to the actual product delivered; you will soon see why the signs failed. California, land of corruption, whose sister is Illinois.
