Social Media

The Village of Clarendon Hills recognizes that social media services, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, provide a pathway for delivering information to residents, visitors, and community partners about activities, programs, goals and initiatives, news, and other information and material intended to increase public awareness, social capital, and civic engagement. The immediacy of social media is a natural fit for communicating messages to the public on short notice, which may include Amber Alerts, safety tips, emergency advisories, public safety notifications, and local events. The purpose of the Village Social Media Policy is to outline the terms and use, prohibited content, and disclaimers as they apply to all Village social media accounts that serve as a communication tool between the Village and the public. Village Staff, and their designees, are the administrators of the Village’s social media account.
