McCandless residents and local non-profit organizations can now spread the word about activities and events by posting information for free on the town’s website and a mobile communication’s app.

Town council on Jan. 28 approved a list of rules for posting announcements to the website and the Savvy Citizens mobile app.

Savvy Citizen is a free, direct-messaging application for smart phones the town launched in 2017 to provide information ranging from the holiday schedule for trash pick-up to road and bridge closings.

Some of the rules for posting to the town’s Community Calendar include:

• Events must conform to the Town of McCandless Statement of Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity.

• Activities must take place within the town’s boundaries for inclusion on the community calendar.

• Events must be submitted electronically by e-mail to: at least three weeks in advance.

• Event postings must include the date, time and location and address for the event along with a brief description.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
