DISCUSSION OF BROCHURE PRINTING
– Printing costs for the Park and Recreation brochures, which has not been raised in 3-4 years, will be going up. Changing the stock weight of the paper used for the brochure allows us to save a significant amount, while also allowing us to add some color to the brochure. The commission members all agreed we should pursue our new brochure design with the lighter weight and color added.
