The Papers Inc. has plans for magazine


The Papers Inc. plans to increase the frequency of publication of a recent acquisition in 2012.

The media group purchased The Municipal, a specialty magazine, in September.

The publication offers news and resources on products and equipment used by police, fire, rescue, airport, street and other municipal departments.

The Municipal originated in Bluffton as a bi-monthly magazine.

Under The Papers, The Municipal promotes businesses and products and feature news articles about new technologies, best practices and trends that improve those departments’ performance.

The full-color magazine addresses topics that include LED lighting, policing with camera technology, wind turbines, safety, waste management, disaster planning, FEMA integration, equipment leasing, risk management, recycling, right of way management, green technology and more.

The Municipal also spotlights regional personalities and successful processes in every issue and features the newest and most innovative products available for keeping city services dependable as well as cost-efficient.

A full-time salesperson and more than 100 other company salespeople will call on advertisers who want to present their businesses or inventory to buyers.

The Municipal is printed in a glossy magazine format and mailed directly to 30,000 public servants, purchasers and vendors in 14 states, including Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio.
