The Chatham Township Committee announced on Tuesday the municipality is now on Facebook and Twitter.
The addition of the social media accounts is part of the town's effort to increase transparency and communication with residents and business owners.
"Our ability to utilize these two sites will
support our ongoing efforts to increase communications with residents and area
businesses and will complement Alert Chatham Township Now! (ACT Now!), our
Emergency & Community Alert System," Mayor Kevin Sullivan said in a prepared statement.
"We encourage residents and local
businesses to ‘like us’ and ‘follow us’ so they can be kept abreast of the
various events taking place around town, as well as important emergency
Sullivan credited the Communications Committee, particularly Deputy Mayor Curt Ritter, for spearheading the effort.
The Chatham Township Committee usually meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the municipal building.
