Advertising spaces for rent
Like most cities Paris has several advertising spaces for rent. I have been unable to find out how much revenues these spaces provide to the city and I am not even sure they provide any revenue. In fact, as far as I could understand, the city rents these spaces to a company (JC Decaux) which provides, in return a fair amount of street furniture and public facilities (like public bathrooms for instance). Apparently this year, the city demanded that the number of spaces be reduced from 2 000 to 1 628. If someone knows more about this I'd be interested to know.
