Description: Keeps residents informed of events and programs throughout Fremont Township and Lake County.
Message/Description: Earlier this year, we deactivated three Facebook pages(assessor, community family services and youth) to make our main township page stronger. We found that few residents were visiting these extra pages and it detracted from our main page, which now serves as the hub for all township news and information. Though it is a work in progress, we’ve seen our “likes” and engagement steadily increase. Our posts are a mix of township events, news, photos and videos, along with posts shared from our community partners. Many entities also kindly share our posts, so it’s a win-win.
Description: We keep our parents/guardians and our volunteer staff informed of up-to-date information on our Youth Dept. programs in the township. If there are any changes in our programs, due to weather or other circumstances, we are able to quickly reach parents/guardians right away. Also included on the Facebook page are photos and videos from the DuPage Township youth events and programming for all to enjoy.
Description: Most people under the age of 55 have a cellphone on their person every day. The phone is the most effective way of communicating with people on a daily basis. Our Road District uses Facebook daily to notify residents of projects that might cause delays or road closures. It's also a great tool for severe weather notifications and emergencies. The cost of using Facebook over a printed newsletter has many advantages. It's cheaper, quicker and better received than a flyer that most people throw away before reading. We produce videos and other entertaining pieces to keep the residents entertained. All too often government takes themselves way too serious and that turns people off.
