PENTICTON - A new feature on the City of Penticton’s website will update you on all things Penticton in one minute.
The “Mayors Minute” blog launched this week as a new feature on the city’s website. The blog gives many residents an easy to access opportunity to read about council news and councillors’ thoughts.
Mayor Andrew Jakubeit said he wants the blog to be “a window that helps people see what council does - the amazing volunteers we meet, the serious issues we tackle and the light-hearted moments we encounter, too.”
The blog will also provide means for councillors to provide guest posts on issues they are aware of. Pictures, featured community programs and links to events will be enabled with the blog, with additional features to be added in the future.
The blog can also be found under the city news section of the City of Penticton website.
