Continuing with our commitment to our CORE Values, the City has taken
the plunge into social media as a way of communicating with our
residents. In our effort to assure timely and open communications,
while providing background and context for the decisions that are made,
we have created both a Facebook page and Twitter account. By utilizing
these two means of instant communications the City is able to quickly
spread the word on upcoming events, and engage in conversations with
citizens. “This effort is seen as a way to expand the
opportunities the City has to communicate with the public in a regular
and rapid manner,” said Hastings Mayor Paul Hicks.
Examples of information that the City posts on Facebook and Twitter
include: snow emergencies, meeting notices, construction updates,
budgeting information, numerous Parks and Recreation announcements,
planning land use updates, grant programs, licensing information,
election information and community events. Find us on Facebook or
