Recently, local businesses have reported being contacted in regards of soliciting advertisement by a map-making company called Liberty Marketing Company. Although there has been some confusion about what organization or government entity authorized the maps, it should be noted that Liberty Marketing Company is endorsed by Howard County.
The confusion stems from the fact that the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce also produces a map of the area featuring chamber member businesses, however, Debbye Valverde, Executive Director for the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce, says that they are not ready to pursue that project just yet. She noted that they always send out letters to their Chamber members to notify them of any businesses that may be contacting them on behalf of the Chamber.
Liberty Marketing Company has been in business since 1992. It is located in Arlington, TX has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and according to Tony Bliss, General Manager for Liberty Marketing, has been making maps for Howard County for over 10 years.
Howard County Judge Kathryn Wiseman was able to confirm that the maps are endorsed by Howard County and noted that they are well made and available at the Howard County Courthouse for anyone who’d like them.
