City of Northfield Launching POLCO: A New Public Engagement Platform Diversifying Engagement Through Technology

NewLogo small.png

Northfield-The City of Northfield is excited to announce the launch of Polco, an innovative engagement platform where residents can directly provide input to the local government decision-making process.  By using Polco, the City is making public participation easier for residents by meeting them where they are.  Officials will post questions directly to residents on Polco’s app and website, where residents answer and comment on questions.

 

The City of Northfield will soon be asking residents to rate aspects of the community.  Specifically, the City wants to know what residents think about Northfield as a place to live, raise children, work, play, retire and visit. 

 

According to City Administrator Ben Martig, “Polco is endorsed by the City’s strategic plan consultant Craig Rapp, and has a reputation for providing significant data on important community issues.”
