Manager wants city’s ‘hamburger’ logo gone

HENDERSON, Nev. – The city manager in Henderson, Nev., says he wants to update the city’s logo after it was mistaken for a hamburger.

Jacob Snow told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the logo is too detailed to print clearly on small items such as business cards. He also said he doesn’t like the image’s saguaro cactus, which is not native to the Mojave desert.

The circular logo was adopted in 1993 and features a mountain range, a lake, buildings and a golf course. City spokesman Bud Cranor said the many colors on the image make it difficult to replicate.

Snow announced in August that he wanted to change the logo but says he wants to phase it out over time to keep costs down.
