At last week's City Council meeting, council was asked to select which slight modification to the current logo would be used for the creation of a style guide. According to the contract with the selected graphic design vendor, the development of the style guide (which will help ensure consistency in city publications) will cost another 24K. That brings the total cost for the logo "update" to 49K. Following media scrutiny and public frustration over the spending, the City Council had some careful questions for City staff during the meeting. Unfortunately, not all of the relevant information was made available. With 24K on the line, I would urge the City Council to reagendize this issue for a closer look.
