Water well work

January 20th, 2014 by Alica

I saw this on city councilman Roger Brooks’ Facebook page.

ATTENTION ALL RESIDENTS OF THE CITY OF BRANDON! Brandon will be making repairs to the well that provides the majority of water to our residents beginning on Tuesday, January 21, 2014. The repairs are expected to be completed in 2 days. During this time we ask residents to restrict their water usage as much as possible. The City will be utilizing a backup well during the repairs. This may cause some residents to experience discolored water during and after the repairs. Please contact City Hall at (606) 582-6515 if you have any questions.

    It is nice to see a council person with this information on their facebook site. This is a perfect example of why the city needs a facebook site.

    facebook sucks! (in my opinion)

  3. @16 Says:

    Billy Bob. You missed the point completely.

    Point being, they need to make this stuff public and known. When Madison had their issues last week, it was blasted out on the City’s Facebook page, the police dept’s Facebook, DSU’s…, the school district.

    Okay super, you hate FB. A email distribution is not difficult, Twitter. . .

    What do we have in Brandon? A big fat zippo…

    I should point out that the information is on the city’s main web page at www.brandonsd.com.

    Alica- Indeed this information is on the City’s webpage. THIS time. They are not known for having their webpage up to date with timely information. An example, as of this moment the LAST city council minutes posted are from 12/16/13. They have had council meetings on 1/6/14 and 1/20/14. Neither of those minutes are posted (granted 1/20 was just last night).

    Also, WHO really goes to the City’s webpage everyday? That would be no-one. A ton of people get facebook (or twitter) updates throughout their day. Information could be shared immediately (very easy)!

    @5. That’s exactly it.

    If this is something that people should know, they should be notified, not actively searching daily for something maybe-possibly there.

    This is the point of news feeds/RSS, social networks, email distribution lists. This technology isn’t new. C’mon Brandon, we’re not a bunch of old farts!

    Example being. Mind blowing tech.

    Nice to see the last two City Council meeting minutes are posted on the City’s webpage. Why do citizens have to “call” the city out on this? Isn’t posting the minutes (in a timely fashion) what we pay employees to do-it’s called their job.

    “what we pay employees to do-it’s called their job.” And I’m sure everyone loves to hear that. Besides city employees do, do their jobs.

    ON Topic I agree the city could do a better of informing the citizens of happenings. Perhaps someone should bring this up at a city council meeting instead of just this forum?

    Why did the citizens of Brandon buy the zamboni? What is our liability if one of the non-city employees driving it gets injured?
