The City of Avondale is diversifying engagement through technology with ‘aVOICE’ to engage residents and seek input
We are excited to announce the launch of POLCO (www.polco.us), an innovative online engagement platform that lets residents provide direct input to the local government decision-making process. By using POLCO, the Avondale is making public participation easier for residents. Officials will post questions directly to residents on POLCO’s app and website, where residents answer and comment on the questions.
Specifically, the City wants to know how residents prefer to receive messages about future engagement initiatives.
The City of Avondale is asking residents for their input on civic engagement initiatives.
Why POLCO: Our local governments work hard to make decisions that benefit all people in the city, but sometimes it's hard for officials to know what each of us wants.
How it works: POLCO simplifies, broadens, and improves participation in local politics by providing a fast, easy, and reliable way for citizens to interact with their governments.
With POLCO, you can vote on policy proposals and agenda items that matter to you. Polco makes it easy for busy but concerned citizens to make a positive impact in their communities.
Where you can use it: You can use POLCO on our website or mobile apps, but you may also find our policy voting widgets on Facebook, Twitter, and on local news sites. Pretty neat, huh? See ya out there!
