Social Media Toolkit

Welcome to the Social Media Toolkit!


As if we didn't have enough to do paving roads, fixing broken water mains, and cleaning sewers, along comes this thing called social media and now everyone wants to know if we're on Facebook or Twitter. The good news is that social media does offer us an opportunity to better communicate with each other and the communities in which we work. The only problem is figuring out what exactly it is and how to use in the limited amount of time we have each day. 

This site was set up to help you with all of that! We will post information and resources you can use to figure out just what social media means. And we will give you examples of how it's being used in public works by people just like you!

And because we know you are busy, we put together a newsletter that can be delivered directly to your email each month so you don't have to keep coming back here to check for new information. So before you leave to check out that last work order, fill in the box to the right and subscribe to our newsletter!
