ROCK HILL, S.C. -- The City of Rock Hill has launched Open City Hall, an online program to solicit citizen input and feedback on important city topics.

The program is accessible from the city's website at www.cityofrockhill.com/OpenCityHall and allows individuals to make comments and suggestions. Visitors to the site can also read comments made by other participants. The forum continues the city's efforts to provide more opportunities for citizen interaction and engagement.

"We are happy to offer this additional venue for citizen input, realizing it is sometimes difficult for people to attend City Council or Planning Commission meetings, " said David Vehaun, City Manager. "This allows a greater portion of our residents to be heard by City Council and staff."

Open City Hall is structured like an online version of a public hearing held in front of Council.  The intention of Open City Hall is to serve as a public online source to gather comments and suggestions from citizens, not as a venue for online conversation among participants. Participants must register with their names, home addresses and email addresses, and may comment once per topic. Edits or updates can be made to previous comments. 

Visit www.cityofrockhill.com/OpenCityHall to read what others are saying about redistricting and the budget, and share your own opinion.
