Newsletter changes January 2020

Currently we are mailing out 1000+ newsletters every other month and many are left at the post office each time and many make their way to the trash or recycle.  We do not want to add to mail that you do not want.  The newsletter is available on line before they are mailed out.  In a effort to go green and reduce unwanted mail, beginning in January 2020, the newsletter will be published and on the website at the end of each month.  For people who still would like to receive the newsletter by mail, it will be mailed to you every two months just like it is now.  The list of people who signed up before will be used.  If you would like to receive by email, you may call the office to be added to the email list.  If you would like to receive by mail you may call the office to be sure that you are on the mail list.  There will also be  copies of the newsletter available to pick up at the office, every other month.  So the mailing will be just as it is now January/February, March/April, May/June, July/August, September/October and November/December.  The people who subscribe to the newsletter or who do not live in Maroa will still receive the newsletter every other month and the subscription price will remain the same.    

For the advertisers, there will no longer be a charge to advertise in the newsletter, we hope that all of the businesses in town will put an ad in to show case their business.  Add some coupons to it as well that people may use at your business.  You may email your ad to  Diane Edwards at dedwardscityclerk@frontier.com or you may drop it by the office.
