Basehor is being branded as “the town in the middle of everywhere.”
In partnership with the city, the Basehor Chamber of Commerce is paying for a video advertisement through KMBC TV-9 in Kansas City, Kan., to promote the city and attract new residents. City Administrator Lloyd Martley said at Monday night’s city council work session that the advertisement, which cost the city $1,500 and the chamber $1,500, will reach 7 million monthly visitors to the news channels website.
“The reach this will have for the cost is just unbelievable,” Basehor Mayor David Breuer said.
The Basehor Chamber of Commerce President Blake Waters said this week that the city will own the video and will be able to use it on its own websites as well. The chamber is also collaborating with Basehor-Linwood School District and the Basehor Community Library to produce the video.
“The idea is to simply promote Basehor and share what we have to offer,” Waters said.
