The city of Miami Beach is getting input from Beach residents on whether to allow more advertising on DecoBike kiosks, the Miami Herald is reporting.
Please do not clutter the deco-bike kiosks with advertising. If the bike program cannot exist on it’s own, it should close, and not accept advertising. It is a blight and it is ugly.
the whole idea of the bikes is a fantastic one… if the city can utilize a little space for advertising so that they don’t have to take a chunk out of the taxpayer’s contribution, I say do it. The ads are not even that large. it is silly to be opposed to this.
But is taxpayers money involved? I thought Deco Bikes was a private company.
It is a private company running the program in conjunction with the City. I have seen the city trucks cleaning and moving around the bicycles. It’s definitely a combined effort with the company and the City. The question is what tax incentives / tax breaks they have gotten, I’m not saying this is bad at all, I think its a good program, a great one… I just think if they limit the ads to the bike baskets, it isn’t awful.
As an aside, I do have to give it to the City for the innovative program, I think it is great. I see people riding the bikes everywhere.
GIVE 6 MILLION BUCKS TO A PRIVATE MILLIONAIRE INSTEAD OF THE CITY PUTTING THE MONEY TOWARD LOWERING OUR TAXES AND IMPROVING SERVICES??!!
If the city is going to allow advertising why not let the citizens profit instead of a private company? Sounds like you do not know the facts. It is money we should get not some private company and multimillionaires.
