External Linking/Posting Policy - Purpose and Disclaimer

The city permits the establishment of external hyperlinks/posts on its official website only if the links/posts strictly comply with this policy. In establishing and maintaining its official Web site, the city does not intend to create any forum or other means for public discourse. Rather, the sole and limited purpose of the permitted external links/posts is to provide information about the city and its government for residents, businesses and visitors. The city does not endorse or provide preferential treatment to any third party website or associated organizations or persons. Additionally, the city does not control third party sites and therefore does not warrant that third party sites are accurate or reliable, or that they have operational links.

Linking/Posting Criteria

In addition, the city reserves the right, at any time and without notice, to: a) deny a link/post that does not meet the criteria set forth in this policy; b) deny or discontinue an external link/post at any time if the web site provides or promotes false, slanderous, illegal, infringing or incorrect information; c) deny or discontinue an external link/post at any time if a substantial purpose of the linked/posted Web site or info is to support or oppose a candidate or ballot measure; d) revise this policy without prior notice when the city considers such revision to be in its best interests.
