Metro okays advertising contract

Metro's board of directors voted Thursday to approve a new three-year advertising contract with firm CSB Outdoor that is expected to bring in $15 million a year in net revenue.

The contract, which also has four one-year options, represents a shrinking advertising market for Metro and was challenged by some board members for lacking innovation.

"This really isn't acceptable," said Christopher Zimmerman, who pressed for limiting the contract to a one-year extension because of the currently depressed advertising market.

Terrible deal. If it's the some company that has the contract now, once again the Board has screwed the riding public.
