Some Hollywood residents are reportedly took issue with this mistake and reached out to local officials.
“The city manager from Hollywood contacted me yesterday, we have a great relationship,” Dania Beach City Manager Ana Garcia said. “He said, 'I want to let you know that one of my residents is reaching out to me letting me know they were appalled that these new signs were installed in Hollywood.”
Garcia said the sign was meant to replaced an old sign in the same spot as part of a rebranding project for Dania Beach. That area is a median that Dania Beach maintains for Hollywood.
“It just came to my attention yesterday and we have been nonstop researching and having our legal team looking into it,” she added.
Officials from both cities are working on resolving the issue. City of Hollywood spokesperon Joanne Hussey said the sign's location "is not a straight line of jurisdiction."
“There are moments you are in Hollywood in certain areas and there are moments you drive along and are back in Dania Beach and Hollywood depending on what side of the street you are on," Hussey said.
