Virginia Beach to move forward with ballot measure information campaign
By Eric Veram
VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia: On Tuesday, September 11, the Virginia Beach City Council voted to approve a city funded effort at disseminating information related to the upcoming referendum on extending Norfolk's light-rail system into the city. The information campaign is estimated to cost $22,673 and will include brochures, print ads, and posters. The campaign does not seek to push one view or the other, but rather attempts to answer questions about the planned route and what will happen if the measure passes or fails.
