WHEREAS, the Board of Supervisors is empowered under the authority of Sections 321.236 and 321.255 and 321.345 of the Code of Iowa to designate any highway under their jurisdiction as a through highway and to designate any intersection as a stop intersection and to erect the signs at one or more entrances to such intersection, and
