The City is always searching for new, diverse methods of communicating with residents. As the Brentwood community relies more and more on electronic information to keep up-to-date on current events including local government news, the City realizes that the use of social media tools can be another way to share timely, pertinent information on the activities of city government and issues affecting the community.
