Following a recent article published on WBEZ91.5’s website about Chicago’s decision to allow businesses to buy advertising space on city properties, JMR Graphics releases a statement regarding increasing revenue with driven media.

On November 19, 2012, Nationwide vehicle wraps manufacturer JMR Graphics, releases statement regarding Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s plan to increase the city’s revenue by allowing companies to purchase ad space on city owned properties.

According WBEZ91.5, “[Chicago] Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration is unveiling plans to rake in millions next year [2013] by leasing dozens of billboards on city-owned property, selling advertising space on downtown trash bins and finding a corporate sponsor for the city’s recycling program.” This type of “municipal marketing” would call for the city to lease a good deal of its billboards, reports the article. In addition, the article states that the plan would also enable businesses to buy advertising space on downtown Chicago trash bins and corporate sponsorship of Chicago’s recycling program.

The article states that, if passed by the City Council, implementation of this plan would increase city revenue without increasing taxes on Chicagoans. Lois Scott, Chicago’s chief financial officer, stated, “We live in an age where our taxpayers don’t want to pay any more taxes [but] our citizens can’t accept less services.”

TJ Pannell, a JMR Graphics representative states, “Mr. Emanuel should really consider using vehicle wraps on all city owned transportation. Companies pay a lot of money for that kind of advertising, especially in a big city like Chicago.” TJ continues, “In a high traffic city, like Chicago, 50,000+ people will see an ad on the side of a moving vehicle each day. That’s a lot of eyes to help increase brand awareness. That’s what companies want. Those views can easily turn into patronage, and businesses will spend a lot of money for that kind of exposure. The City Council should think about that.”
