Paris City Limits in 1998

Paris, Mo. city limits

On Missouri 15 going north into Paris, this August 1998 photo showed a standard Missouri city-limit sign assembly with an addition: the "MCB" emblem adjacent to the city-limit sign indicated participation in a state-sponsored municipal improvement contest called "Missouri Community Betterment".

Apparently, the contest is no more. When I returned to this site in 2012, the "MCB" emblem was gone, the population figure had gone down, and the speed limit sign had been replaced (though the speed limit was the same).
