City officials are looking into the legality of the deal after a member of the City Council raised questions about whether the city could, in effect, advertise for Royal Caribbean by placing the cruise line’s logo and promotional text on city-owned educational placards along Ketchikan Creek.
“I would very much love to to put it towards sewer lines or any a huge list of other needs that we have in the community,” said City Council member Riley Gass. “But I think right now we’re in get through this crisis mode.”
“I can’t come up with anything that would be any rationale to not consider this. The benefits seem to be obvious,” City Council Member Mark Flora said. “If body-worn cameras are good, dashcams should be an enhancement.”
