Hamilton City Council Launches Facebook Page

1 AUGUST 2011 For Immediate Release

Hamilton residents can now keep up to date with Council business by logging onto Facebook.

An official Hamilton City Council Facebook page, www.facebook.com/hamiltoncitycouncil, was recently launched, which will act as a channel for informing residents and ratepayers about decisions made by Council and providing general information on Council activities.

Hamilton City Council Communication and Marketing Manager Michelle Smith said the page will also be another way for Council to gauge public opinions and prompt discussions about topics of change or interest relating to its business.

“We recognise that many of our residents and ratepayers are now choosing to use online media tools such as Facebook as a primary source of information. We invite these people to like our page so they can receive regular updates on Council news and business that may impact them.”

Hamilton City Council also oversees the Hamilton NZ Facebook page (www.facebook.com/hamiltonnewzealand), which is designed to keep current residents, ex-pats and visitors to Hamilton informed of events, new developments and places of interest in the city. More than 8,600 people currently ‘like’ the Hamilton NZ Facebook page.
