Beginning in March 2012, the Township will be revamping its newsletter publication and distribution program from the traditional "mass mail" approach to a more modern and multi-faceted distribution effort. In attempt to control cost and still provide current news and information to Township citizens via its published newsletter, a new "Opt In" program will be rolling out shortly that will allow all citizens to sign up or subscribe to receive the mailed newsletter "TOWNSHIP TODAY." Only those subscribing will receive the mailed publication.
To take advantage of the Township's website technologies and for computer savvy and "green" conscious citizens, the newsletter distribution program will include a technological component. Specifically, the Township plans to take advantage of the power on its website, which allows citizens to register for newsletter publication notices on its "NOTIFY ME" system. This system notifies each registrant via e-mail or cell phone of the newsletter's availability on the website and provides information or links to the digital version of the document.
The Township's goal in this program is to always increase public awareness, interest, understanding and participation in Township issues, programs and services and to build and maintain strong internal and external relationships through effective communication. We believe that the new distribution program, when properly promoted will allow "hard copy" readers and the computer savvy ones to remain "tuned in" to pertinent information and happenings in Manheim Township.
Please "stay tuned" in March for more specific information on subscribing to "TOWNSHIP TODAY" and directions on using the "Notify Me" system.
