• Brownsburg to Use Social Media to Reach Out to Residents

    February 18, 2011 No comments

    Brownsburg residents can now connect with the Town of Brownsburg on popular social media sites. The Town has recently launched its official Facebook page and Twitter feed to increase the ways it communicates with the community.

    Facebook users can “like” the Town’s page by logging onto www.facebook.com and searching for Town of Brownsburg. Twitter users can now follow the Town by logging onto twitter.com/BrownsburgIN. To get tweets from the Town via text message, users can send the message “follow BrownsburgIN” to 40404.

    With 60 percent of adults using social media to find information, the Town recognized it needed to add the tools to its traditional forms of communication. Regular postings on both sites will help citizens to stay informed and get involved with Town events.

    Brownsburg Town Manager Dale Cheatham said “We are committed to government transparency, customer service, and improved communications,”. ”We want people to stay informed about what is going on in Town government and our community.

    He went on to say, “The ways people are getting their information are constantly evolving. These new social media tools will allow us to increase community access to local government and we hope to engage a larger number of citizens.”

    The Facebook and Twitter pages are just a part of the Town’s effort to bolster communications. It recently launched new streaming media technology, allowing anyone with an Internet connection to watch public meetings in progress or view past meetings through a link on its website, www.brownsburg.org.

    The social media sites are not meant to replace the way citizens submit service requests or complaints. Residents should continue to use the website Action Center form on www.brownsburg.org or call Town Hall at 852-1120 when they need a response.
