Other logos, such as the Perryville Main Street or the chamber of commerce logos, will be discontinued over time.
Mary Stith Hamlin, owner of Stith Funeral Home, and Danville Mayor Hugh Coomer expressed concern over other areas such as Perryville, Junction City, Mitchellsburg or Parksville being left out
Nelson and EDP President Jody Lassiter said the logo needs to be strictly adhered to in order to make it a unifying feature, but that certain aspects can be changed, such as the color scheme, to work with a city's own identity.
