The following is a note posted to the Austin Neighborhoods Council listserve:

Yesterday, the City of Austin launched
several new initiatives to continue our effort to expand outreach and
interaction with all of our residents. This includes a new e-mail
listserve system, City Manager updates and a City Twitter account. I
encourage all of you to check them out, sign up, and encourage your
neighbors to do so as well.

Over the coming months, we'll continue
to refine these tools and introduce new ones, and I look forward to
hearing your feedback as they evolve. See the link below for
information and links to these new resources. Thanks!

Doug Matthews, Chief Communications
