New information delivery platform helps residents connect and engage with city government

Posted Dec. 16, 2016

Archived Content Information and links provided may no longer be accurate.

Early in 2017, Fort Worth will launch a new information delivery system that’s customized to residents’ interests.

With the addition of the GovDelivery platform, subscribers will be able to choose the topics they wish to read about and will determine when and how often these topics are delivered to them. Daily and weekly digests of information will be available.

If you’re interested in athletic leagues, sign up for recreation-oriented bulletins. If you’re really into sustainability, sign up for environmental news. You get the idea.

All city departments will be using GovDelivery as their delivery mechanism for news and information to residents.

The last edition of City News will be distributed on Dec. 26. Don’t worry, no content is going away — it will just look a tad different and will be delivered in a new, more convenient format.

“Fort Worth is an open city government, responsive to the information needs of our residents,” said Michelle Gutt, director of communications and public engagement. “We strive to provide information that residents want in their daily lives and that they require to fulfill their roles in local government. The addition of GovDelivery is another tool in our toolbox for providing news and information early in the decision-making process to allow residents to provide input and to become engaged.”

More than 1,800 public-sector agencies use GovDelivery to increase digital engagement, grow their digital audience and build communities.

Current City News subscribers will receive an email message detailing how to subscribe to the new system and how to choose preferred topics and delivery times.
