Q&A: Increasing public notice rates


From the Palladium-Item (Richmond):

Q: Can we increase our public notice advertising rates? I reviewed IC 5-3-1-1, and I believe it allows for an increase. Does this still stand?  

A: The law controlling the maximum rate newspapers can charge for public notice advertising allows for a 2.75 percent increase in 2013.

HSPA shared with advertising directors the rate charts from the state Board of Accounts. Anyone who still needs this information can contact me at skey@hspa.com or (317) 624-4427.

If your column width isn’t included on the charts, I can help you determine the line rates.
