Fairfax County Launches New Online Information Resource
The Fairfax County Office of Public Affairs, in collaboration with county agencies and departments, has launched Fairfax County News to Use, a new online information resource for residents, community organizations and businesses. Located at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/news, the publication presents ongoing highlights of the county in one central location, including news articles, key links, photos, e-government resources and calendars. Information about Fairfax County is now available to an expanded audience throughout the county, the state — and even the world.
Fairfax County News to Use information was previously in a subscriber-only, text-only monthly e-mail message targeted primarily to homeowners associations for their newsletters. The new version is accessible to anyone with Internet access (the page is currently best viewed in Internet Explorer). The News to Use page will be updated frequently and readers can join an e-mail list for occasional messages that will compile the latest headlines and information.
The conversion of Fairfax County News to Use to a Web publication will continue its basic purpose and content — offering practical, actionable information from Fairfax County departments and agencies — in an enhanced format that can be updated as news occurs. This format also increases access to additional resources, such as key transportation links and more parks and recreation information.
