Likely, your city or organization’s website is the home base for information, an outreach channel and a resource for both staff and residents.


  • Create a blog article explaining why the City chose Polco and what you want to achieve with it, and link it to your Polco post to keep other messages short. 

    • Why is it valuable?

    • How will feedback be used?

    • How is data protected?

    • How do you access Polco?

  • Create a FAQ page. 

    • Another informational area where you can spell out details.

    • If the same question is repeated, add it to your FAQ.

    • Link to this page to keep other messages short.

  • Create a blog about a set of Polco questions.

  • Post links to Polco questions on your homepage and the pages of related departments.


Example blog: 


“The City of XYZ is excited to partner with Polco to provide a platform for resident engagement. We believe the Polco platform will be valuable for several reasons:


  • It provides a fast way for residents to learn about specific issues and give their input.

  • It allows the City to reach out to residents through different communication channels (social media, email, websites, etc.) while gathering resident responses in one central location.

  • It keeps individual opinions anonymous, while allowing City staff to see broad demographic and geographic breakdowns.


We hope that, by providing this quick and simple input process, we will hear from more people in our community and from people from varied backgrounds, who have different experiences and interests. 


Getting input from a wide array of residents will help us ensure that we understand the values of our community members. And it will let us be sure that we are representing our neighbors in the large and small decisions we make about programs, policies and strategic plans.
