BAKER, La. - Bus riders may soon have seating at some of the Capital Area Transit System bus stops in Baker.

The city council voted this past week to authorize Mayor Harold Rideau to enter into a contract with Giraffe Advertising to place benches at stops in the city.

The city would receive 20 percent of the gross advertising revenue from the benches and Giraffe Advertising would be required to maintain the benches and grounds surrounding the seating, including cutting grass, removing graffiti and picking up litter.

The company was willing to give Baker 20 percent of the advertising revenue as opposed to the 10 percent Baton Rouge receives in part because Baker agreed to a 10-year contract.
