Sponsor a shelter in Snyderville

Patrick Parkinson, Of the Record staff

The Summit County Commission is contemplating a plan to allow private businesses to advertise on bus shelters in the Snyderville Basin.

According to Public Works Administrator Kevin Callahan, the county will soon purchase shelters for four bus stops for $16,000 each.

Organizations could pay to advertise on the inside of shelters in "high-demand spots," Callahan said.

He intends to present plans for the program to the Park City Chamber/Bureau and Park City Board of Realtors.

But Summit County Commissioner Bob Richer insists those who sponsor shelters must know upfront what they are buying.

"Nobody wants a shabby shelter," County Commissioner Sally Elliott recently added.
