York Council advertising spend
Plans to spend £85,000 on marketing at Leeds Bradford Airport have been called-in by opposition councillors.
Last week the Labour Cabinet agreed that City of York Council would spend an initial £85,000 on marketing the city at the airport, with £10,000 for the development of the campaign followed by £75,000 for the roll out.
A further three instalment of £75,000 could then be invested over the next three years.
