Granby City Market stoplight seems awfully expensive

To the Editor:

A “stoplight” is a device consisting of a box with 3-5 colored lights and/or arrows facing (usually) 4 directions. Said lights are designed to regulate automobile traffic by changing the colors of the lights with a simple timer.

The device is usually suspended on a cable between two poles on either side of the subject roadway. Electrical power is also needed to run the device.

Could someone please explain to me why such a monumentally simple device would cost $375,000?

Heck, I’ll put it in for just $374,500.
