It’s not simply a matter of the newspapers delivering ads and trying to promote themselves.The free editions contain official notices from Jefferson Parish, JPSO, and the City of Gretna. Of course there aren’t official notices in every edition. But making special deliveries only when there are official notices to publish would be more expensive. Having a regular schedule allows the papers to sell ads and keep total costs down. That means the Parish, JPSO, etc pay less for the service. And in turn, that’s a savings to us as taxpayers.
