Basalt, Colo. (AP) - Maybe the town of Basalt isn't so welcoming after all.
That's the impression government officials fear people will get when they enter the town because new posted signs say ``warning'' in red letters right below the sign that reads, ``Welcome to Basalt.''
The warning refers to a town ordinance that prohibits drivers from letting their cars idle for more than two minutes. But town Councilwoman Amy Capron says having the signs so close together
makes it ``daunting and not so welcoming.''
She and another councilman say they have received several complaints about the signs from residents in this town about 180 miles west of Denver.
The town mayor suggested that the signs be separated and officials plan to relocate them.
