The city of Asheville is launching a new question and answer effort from the public, this time via Facebook, complete with a video introduction.
The initiative is part of the city’s ongoing efforts to use social media to receive input and answer questions, and the first post, promising video answers to citizen’s questions, went up this morning.
““We are excited about the potential the program has to increase the overall understanding of local government operations and ongoing projects,” declares Administrative Services Director Lauren Bradley in an announcement from the city. “Staff will still be available to answer questions by phone, but this program increases accessibility for those who want to ask questions after 5 p.m. or on the weekends.”
In the future, city staff may also ask the public questions through Facebook.
