Waterloo Iowa Debates Selling Advertisements
The city of Waterloo in Iowa is debating whether they should sell ads for fleet vehicles. The potential advertisements may bring in upwards of $100,000 per year. While Councilman Ron Welper backs the idea, the Chief of police has a different opinion. He is against adding advertisements, citing that it takes away from the professionalism of the force. Oceanside in California has also looked into adding advertisements to the bumper region of 100 ambulances, police vehicles, and buses. Their proposal, while done last year, believed that they could generate over $150,000 in revenue for the city.
