As I mentioned last week, the Town of Blacksburg is using Twitter to broadcast news and notes to citizens regarding things happening in the Town.
I love the idea, and yesterday I saw two things posted that caught my eye, so I took a screenshot from my phone and posted it here:
* a reminder that carboard can now be recycled during the weekly pickup. Just make sure to break down the pieces and lay them under your blue bin when you set it out. They must be less than 3 feet long by 3 feet wide when broken down. You can find out more regarding the Recycling guidelines at Blacksburg.gov/recycling.
* Sustainability Week in Blacksburg is coming up, October 20-25. More information to follow - there's not much on their website right now, but they do have the Executive Summary from last year (see below)
Don't forget to fill out the survey the Town is distributing, asking for citizen input on Downtown issues. The deadline for submission is September 15th. I can't find anything on the website about it, so here's an image of the form that you can print and send in. Topic #1 for improving Downtown - provide an electronic copy on your website of the form you want people to fill out. (It may be there, I'm just not seeing it).
