Lake S Clean-Up Saturday, New Facebook Pages, more...

July 18, 2013
Greetings!

Welcome to Sarasota County Community Connections. If you have questions, ideas for articles, or feedback on the system, contact us at communityconnections@scgov.net.  
Coming soon! New and updated Facebook pages from Sarasota County
Sarasota County continues to expand its Facebook presence to appeal directly to citizens. New pages are in development for Parks and Recreation, the Green Business Partnership and Neighborhoods. In addition to the new pages, the county's official page will change from Community Connections to Sarasota County Government. Hurricane Central will become Emergency Management. Both changes are designed to more accurately reflect the purpose of each page. New pages are expected to come online in the next several weeks. Changes to current pages should take place next week, so stay tuned.
