City lacks grown-up outlook

Our city needs to grow up. You want to remove the signs from the benches, then remove the signs from the STA buses. Everywhere else in the country buses and taxicabs (not here) are allowed to receive extra income from advertising. So our city is going to deny this income to whoever needs it.

If the city received a portion of that income they would be glad to leave it alone. Why don’t our taxicabs have advertisers on them? Small town with big-town needs and no ideas to expand their city income. Our city is just that – a city – and we need to start doing what Seattle, Portland, etc., does. Not what Rockford or Ritzville does.
