From Glass City Jungle: We already have advertising on the City website being used as a plan to cover the salary and benefits of the webmaster hired by the Mayor and now, I heard on WTOL that police cruisers will most likely be the next to carry advertising to help pay for new vehicles.

Well-just saw on local news-the latest in the long line of guvs that have given OHEILO a screw job continues unabated.
