Social Media Policy
Social media is an umbrella term that defines the various activities that integrate technology, social interaction, and content creation. Please note that the comments expressed through any City of Arvada social media medium do not reflect the opinions and position of the City of Arvada or its officers and employees.
We welcome citizen comments and expect that any conversation will follow the general rules of respectful civil discourse. We recognize that the social media is a 24/7 medium; however, moderating comments will generally occur during regular business hours Monday through Friday. Comments submitted after hours or on weekends will be read as early as possible. In most cases, this means the next business day. Commenters are fully responsible for everything that they submit in their comments, and all posted comments are in the public domain. We do not discriminate against any views, but we reserve the right not to post comments. By default commenting ability will be "turned on" where possible, and citizens will be allowed to leave comments on all social media content. All comments will be monitored by a comment moderator. At the request of a content "business owner," commenting ability may be removed due to the sensitivity of the subject material. However, this will be the exception and not the norm.
