Social Media

The purpose of the Town of Harrisburg’s digital and social media platforms is to share matters of interest to the residents of the Town of Harrisburg, including but not limited to, Town information, events, public service announcements, emergency-related items and other public affairs. We encourage you to submit your questions, comments and concerns, but please note this is a moderated online discussion site and not a public forum. This policy establishes the guidelines for the establishment and use by the Town of Harrisburg of social media sites as a means of conveying Town information to citizens and visitors. We recognize the Internet is a 24/7 medium, and comments by the general public are welcome at any time. However, we generally will monitor comments and postings only during regular business hours. In addition, once posted, the Town of Harrisburg reserves the right to delete/restrict submissions from posters that contain: 
  1. Vulgar language 
  2. Personal attacks of any kind 
  3. Comments or content that promotes, fosters or perpetuates discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, age, religion, gender, marital status, genetics, status with regard to public assistance, national origin, physical or intellectual disability or sexual orientation 
  4. Spam or links to other sites 
  5. Clearly off-topic statements 
  6. Statements advocating illegal activity 
  7. Promotions of particular services, products, or political organizations 
  8. Infringement of copyrights or trademarks 
  9. Personally identifiable medical information 
  10. Information that may compromise the safety, security or proceedings of public systems or any criminal or civil investigations. 
The Town also reserves the right to deny access to Town social media for any individual who violates the policy on social media posted. In addition, all comments posted to any social media site is bound by that site’s policies, rules, and regulations.
