"There's a critical quality of life issue here," said City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz to the TribLocal. "There is not every community in Illinois coming before city councils saying let's do advertising. I understand that. I also understand that we continue to face multi-million dollar deficits as we move forward." Not all city council members are gung-ho about the advertisements, especially Ald. Melissa Wynne, 3rd. "At a time when our lives are so cluttered with unwanted messages and advertising, you can't buy groceries at the grocery store without being assaulted by television advertising," said Ald. Wynne to the TribLocal. "I find it objectionable that we would coat our city assets with advertising."
