Pittsburg City manager blog to help ‘transparency’

Pittsburg residents have a new way to keep up on the doings at the City of Pittsburg.

The city has created a blog to share city news and updates with the community.

On Tuesday, Pittsburg City Manager Daron Hall put up the first post on the city’s accomplishments and projects the city has planned for 2018.

The blog serves as another information platform for the community and news outlets to use.

Hall said the city takes pride in Pittsburg and its accomplishments, and wants to share them with the community — including the city employees who are hard at work in the background fixing water lines and more.

He said the process of sharing Pittsburg’s stories started when they hired Public Information Manager Sarah Runyon.

With her help, Hall said, they plan to run the blog and utilize social media to be as transparent as possible.
