The faces of Stanton’s bus shelters will be getting lifted by the Coastline Advertising Corporation.
At Tuesday’s city council meeting, a maintenance agreement was approved between the city of Stanton and corporation for a 10-year contract.
The contract details that Coastline will provide maintenance and upkeep of the shelters that they will provide for damages of up to $50.
However, larger scale damage, such as physical replacement from an incident such as a vehicle impact would be left up to the city to repair
Advertising would be left mostly in the hands of Coastline, however the city will have some input on the matter.
Previously, the advertising at bus shelters was though Clear Channel, however they pulled out of their advertising agreements with Stanton and other cities in the wake of the state economic crisis.
With the new contract, there will be a higher percentage of ad revenue given to the city and two local charities will benefit from that revenue.
Stanton Community Services and the Stanton Boys and Girls Club will each receive 5 percent of profits generated by business from bus shelter ad placements.
Council member David Shawver asked Coastline president Michael Culver if a Stanton logo could be present on the bus shelters themselves, as a welcome statement of sorts to the people who pass through the city on their commutes.
Culver laughed and told the council that affixing a logo on the shelters would very possible.
