Municipality drops city sign with cult status after 20 years of thefts

It's all over with a town sign for the small Funen village of Snave. The town sign, which has almost cult status, is simply stolen again and again.

It costs a fortune every time motorists and other curious people with too long fingers peel down a city sign to get away with it.

They can talk about this in Bornholm Municipality, where 'lost' town signs are regularly replaced. And now they've had enough. Just in a completely different part of the country.

In the small Funen village of Snave, which is part of Assens Municipality, drastic measures have been taken to avoid the thefts.

Assens Municipality has simply decided to take down the town sign permanently. Instead, the town name "Snave" is burned into the asphalt.

In fact, it has already happened, says Jens Jakobsen (V), who is chairman of the Environment, Technology and Planning Committee in Assens Municipality.

The committee chairman adds that it has cost DKK 100,000 a year to replace the many stolen city signs alone.

Both Snave and the town sign came seriously into the Danes' consciousness when a film was made out of the character "Polle from Snave" which the telecommunications company Sonofon – today Telenor – invented in the early 00s.
