This is our logo and new brand how do you feel about it? Do you like it? was it money well spent? looking for opinions?
Some will argue that it will be paid for out of grant money technically that is true MSI Capital funding what they do not tell you is all the other things that could have been done with that funding check them out at http://municipalaffairs.alberta.ca/documents/ms/2013__MSI_Capital_Program_GuidelinesPDF_Final.pdf
was the logo/brand a priority?
What did it cost us? budget $200,000 for entrance signs $50,000 to develop the brand/logo, $20,000 to buy and install banners (150). Three hour meeting with all municipal staff ($35 per hour including benefits), wine and cheese presentation for first dignitaries, and a second presentation for the rest of us. Updating web site, stationary, all municipal documents, placing on all municipal equipment and facilities. Administration and Council time this was not an insignificant burden on the taxpayers.
The reaction I am hearing from citizens while I am campaigning is one "did we really need this" two "I loved the mountain freedom" three "wasn't there better places to spend the money" and four "I don't care if it was $200K, $300K or even $400K it was too much money"
Note: If anybody wants to dispute my numbers for the costs of the above please post what they believe to be the actual numbers!
