Thank's for all the response. Can I comment on a few posts?
Adsense is completely out of the question as there is no control over what's advertised.
I disagree. It's certainly not a fail-safe system, but there is a level of control using tags, page content, and maintainance.
You mean local accountants, attorneys, etc. opening AdWords accounts so their ads would appear on the county's website? If Google comes up with a way to make that happen, let me know.
Letting you know: I think the approach that EFV has used (with success, as far as I know) has potential in this case. Besides that, there is a growing momentum for local businesses to jump on the local search bandwagon, which is waking up the market, I think.
No- I'd sue in a heartbeat.
Sue on what basis? No law that I know of has been broken.
