Why a blog?

Since I’ve taken office, I’ve strived to find ways to not only keep people informed about what is going on in our community, but tried to encourage people to become involved.

We’ve enhanced our cable access channel, started our own radio station (WSMP-LP 105.9FM), created a City app for iOS and Android phones, formed several citizen advisory committees and tried to better utilize social media. This next step comes from ideas generated by your Alderpersons who are looking for ways to better connect with their constituents and keep them informed about things going on in their respective districts.

I give you….. the Blog! Blog is a combination of two words, web and log. The concept has been around for many years as a way for people to put thoughts to paper (virtual paper, I guess) and share it with anyone who cares to read it.

As a public entity, we need to follow a few laws and therefore we do not allow comments or discussions to take place on a blog. If you want to share your thoughts with me or any of the Alders, contact us directly.

Also, it is important to note that anything written in this blog or any other blog for that matter, do not necessarily reflect those of the City of Stevens Point or should be taken as such.

From time to time, I may post thoughts or share some of the things your City has been working on. We’ll monitor to see how useful the blog is as yet another tool to help you connect with your local government.
