Yes, but what about when there are two different names on street signs depending on where you are on the street?  It clearly is a mistake on the part of the sign department, but in this case it probably means you have to go with the "un- authoritative" data from the local jurisdiction no matter what the street sign says.

Although this has been resolved as a misreading of the site, in this case, correct is the ground truth.

For OSM, the data from the city is not authoritative. Ground truth is.
