Your Opinion: Don't overlook "naming rights'

Your Opinion: Don't overlook "naming rights'

November 28th, 2012 by Frank Rycyk, 406 Chestnut St. in News

Dear Editor:

According to a recent News Tribune/Jeff Haldiman story Councilman Bob Weber brought up the concept of "naming rights" in City Council conference center discussions.

This leads to something we may have overlooked. Naming rights are worth money, often large amounts.

I know that this idea is being presented late in the process. Potential large sums of money are not, however, to be overlooked.

I admonish the City Council to reconsider. Naming rights could be bid out. The council would have final approval.
