City to discontinue print newsletter

Rockford City Council will discontinue the print edition of the City newsletter, The Outlook. According to City Manager Michael Young, the step is in line with the City’s goal to be more “green” and would also save $6,000 a year for the six newsletters printed. The information would instead be available online.

The City would still print a limited number of newsletters for those who ask to have one delivered to their homes. “I don’t know if we don’t hear from people we assume that’s good enough,” commented councilman Rich Moll during the board meeting Monday, July 20. He suggested a notice in the final newsletter, which will be printed this fall, asking people to let the City know if they prefer a printed edition.
