CITY OF WEST CHICAGO COMMUNICATIONS
The City of West Chicago's Marketing and Communications Division oversees the city's communication initiatives. All City news, events, and program updates are published on the website as soon as they are ready. If you have any inquiries, please contact the Marketing and Communications Division for assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RECENT & ARCHIVED NEWS
This page, as well as the City's homepage, offers an archive of recently published news items. When a post from the City has been up for a specific duration, it is typically taken down and placed in the City's 'News Archive,' which is accessible on this webpage.
After being published on the City's website, news articles are shared across the City's digital communications channels, such as its Facebook and Twitter (i.e., "X") pages. Additionally, a bi-weekly e-newsletter is sent out every other Friday (twice per month). To stay updated with the City's communication channels, please use the provided buttons to sign up.
