Parsippany hopes ads will raise money, limit tax hikes

PARSIPPANY - Parsippany may have ads pop up in unusual places, including garbage trucks and water towers, in an effort to limit tax hikes.

News 12 New Jersey spoke to Parsippany Mayor James Barberio, who says that the state diverted $1.2 million in revenues. He say he has to find a way to bring revenues back to town, so he thought advertising.

Barberio says the state cut the town's aid from $5.7 million in 2009 to $4.5 million in 2010 and that 2011 looks even worse.

If the budget still looks bleak, Parsippany is also considering turning school buses into moving billboards.
