City of Evanston Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl will be hosting the very first Evanston “Facebook Town Hall” Meeting from noon until 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27, 2013. As the city continues to search for new and innovative ways to engage its residents, social media continues to be at the forefront of this new wave. This is part of a series of events in which the city hopes to engage residents via a social media platform.

Facebook has proven to be a very powerful tool in both delivering and collecting information. From blizzards to heat waves, city residents remain informed and responsive.

Starting March 20, residents can submit their questions at www.facebook.com/CityofEvanston or by sending an e-mail to lstowe@cityofevanston.org. The Mayor will be discussing several issues of concern to Evanston residents in the virtual meeting and then will field pre-submitted and live questions.

For more information, please e-mail Luke Stowe at lstowe@cityofevanston.org or call 847/448-8633.
