Dec '20/Jan '21 Crossroads Newsletter

Crossroads Newsletter - Dec 2020/Jan 2021

The digital version of the December 2020/January 2021 Crossroads Newsletter is available for download in PDF format, linked and embedded below.

This is our fourth issue of the new all-digital Crossroads Newsletter

While we have yet to see the full fiscal budgetary impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the city, we know there will be one. In response, city staff has been searching for ways to get ahead of and ease those effects. The bi-monthly city newsletter, Crossroads, has traditionally been printed and mailed out to residential households, at a significant cost. After consideration, city staff has decided the best way to proceed in the foreseeable future is to publish the Crossroads Newsletter digitally, making it available on the city website and social media platforms for download and viewing.

Benefits of this include:

  • We are no longer limited in the length of the newsletter, as longer newsletters meant increased charges for printing and mailing. This is not the case with digital versions.
  • Real-time updates and changes can be made in the digital newsletter if dates, times or information changes during its 2-month run.
  • Digital publications can be completed and made available to the public the same day, ensuring the most timely information is present in the newsletter. Printed versions, once completed, would not appear in mail boxes for another week.

We hope you understand that difficult decisions such as these are being made by businesses and local/state/federal governments across the country…all in response to the budgetary impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Know that we will always prioritize citizen services, safety and quality of life when making these decisions.
