Friday Newsletter PoliciesPURPOSE
The Friday Email Newsletter (“the Newsletter”) is sent to a private email list of Glendale residents and those outside of Glendale who have a Glendale connection. On occasion, stand-alone email messages may be sent to the resident-subscribers on the email list, where their importance and urgency are deemed to warrant it. Subscription is voluntary.
The purpose of the newsletter is to provide subscribers with notice of governmental activities, committee meetings, pending legislation, flag notices of those deceased, service schedules, safety alerts, and certain types of community and business events. The newsletter is owned and administered by the Village of Glendale. Unless otherwise stated, all references and policies regarding the Newsletter also apply to the standalone email messages.
TIMELINE & DISTRIBUTION
Submissions for the Newsletter are due every Thursday by 4:30 pm at the Village Office or by email to the Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Newsletter will be distributed weekly to the Glendale Newsletter Email List and will be available on the Village website every Friday afternoon at around 5:00 p.m.
Exceptions may take place in consideration of important and urgent governmental notices that warrant posting on other days of the week.
