Wijchen – D66 Wijchen asked the council of the municipality of Wijchen about advertising in public space for a multinational.
“Neighborhood prevention groups have been active in the municipality of Wijchen for several years. These neighborhood prevention groups come from the inhabitants and strengthen social cohesion in the neighborhoods. As can be read on the municipality’s website, a sign can be placed in neighborhoods in consultation with the head of a neighborhood prevention group. This has also happened in various places. It is a deterrent and increases the feeling of security, ”says D66 Wijchen.
“D66 Wijchen notes, however, that the installation of these panels goes hand in hand with the multinational advertising company WhatsApp. D66 Wijchen considers that it is undesirable to use public funds to advertise such an enterprise. It is not necessary to put a logo of this company on the prevention signs in the neighborhood. The signs that only indicate that neighborhood (online) prevention is underway are sufficiently clear with regard to D66 Wijchen. “
D66 Wijchen wants to know from college if the The municipality of Wijchen agrees with D66 that this is a form of advertising and if the municipality is ready to adapt the current signs and thus eliminate advertising.
