A total of $12,000 to $20,000 to paint the over the orange "Seniors 2014" message on the train bridge in Hudson and the wording on other two bridges?

Even with the labor involved and hiring a train flagman, something smells fishy in this equation. Black Rustoleum at $32 dollars a gallon at the local big box home improvement store and a little elbow grease should do the trick to cover up the so-called offensive orange letters, even though I wouldn't be surprised if they reappear next year.
