HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — A southwestern Ohio city is planning to pay $700,000 for a huge digital billboard visible to motorists on Interstate 70.

Officials in the Dayton suburb of Huber Heights say naming rights for city-owned facilities and advertisements eventually will pay for the 65-foot-high sign just west of a new $18 million music center.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1sZrbJL ) reports that the city will pay about $50,000 a year for 20 years to finance the project. The public will have a chance to weigh in when the legislation has a first reading at Monday night's city council meeting.

An advertising company would manage and help build the city-owned sign in exchange for permission to build its own sign elsewhere in the city of about 40,000 people north of Dayton.
