Misspelling of Atze Parade sign

The Barossa Council has ordered a replacement sign for Atze Parade, Nuriootpa after it was called to their attention that the two signs at either end of the street were spelt differently.

The sign on the end of Atze Parade, joining to Greenock Road was spelt correctly, but the sign at the other end where the road meets Peramangk Road was spelt as “Ateze”.

The Barossa Council say that the signs were erected in September 2005 in honour of former Captain of the Nuriootpa CFS, Mr John Azte’s valuable contribution to the community.

The issue was reported to Council on December 8 and a new replacement sign has been ordered at the cost of $48.

John was Captain of the Nuriootpa CFS for
21 years and says that he was told via a letter in the mail and a phone call that the street would be named after him.

“I felt very honoured to have a street named after me,” he said.

“It’s not what you would expect, but they seem to be doing that kind of thing a lot by naming streets after people who have done things around the Barossa.”

John says that before a call from The Leader about the issue on Monday, he had no idea that one of the signs was spelt incorrectly.
