After receiving parameters in an opinion from State Attorney General Bill McCollum, the City of Coral Springs launched a Facebook page on Monday, June 8. Staff will post press releases, events, photos, and general information about City business on page daily as a way of opening an additional communications channel with residents.
The primary objective of the Coral Springs Facebook page is to provide easy-to-access information and real-time updates about the City of Coral Springs. Posts will be allowed for a trial period for 30 days, and the City will rely on Facebook’s content policy as it applies to user comments.
"I hope we get tremendous feedback from our citizens and really elevate the interaction between us to help us do business that much more efficiently," Mayor Scott Brook said. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to engage with citizens, especially our young people, through this method. I think we’ll be able to build on the 25 other modes of communication that we currently have with citizens, and this additional tool will help us greatly.”
To view the City's page, users must have a Facebook account and search for “Coral Springs Florida.” Once the page has been accessed and a friend request submitted, users will receive updates and wall feeds from the City as available.
