John Bermingham, founder of the Norfolk Organization for Government Oversight, or NOGO, said members of his group contributed $235 for 12 signs announcing the Oct. 24 Special Town Meeting.
Initially, Bermingham had pledged $75 for one sign, but the group was able to secure a better rate after raising money to purchase additional signs.
The signs have been placed at seven locations around town, Bermingham said.
The NOGO signs are in addition to three signs placed by the town, which officials erected after Bermingham asked Town Administrator Jack Hathaway to help raise awareness about the meeting. The town has also sent the warrant for the meeting to every household in Norfolk.
