A Message to the Citizens of Biddeford: Misleading Social Media Sites and Webpages
There have been several attempts recently to create social media pages and websites using the City of Biddeford’s official seal and name. While these sites may look official, please be aware that the City limits its internet and social media presence. In order for the public to confirm official City of Biddeford sites, the City has published a list of official web and social media sites and can be download by clicking on the highlighted link. This will allow the public to verify sites as official; if it isn’t on the list it isn’t an official City site.
It is important that the public have confidence in the information available on the web and through social media as it relates to official City business. Unfortunately, the continued efforts by one or more individuals to mislead the public, require staff and executives to expend time and effort responding to fake and misleading information.
You can help by reporting suspect social media pages and websites. An online reporting form will be available the week of January 2nd. In the meantime, please call 284-9313 to report a questionable site.
The City of Biddeford has begun an update of its Comprehensive Plan. Information on the update process and materials related to the plan can be found by going to http://www.biddefordmaine.org/compplan
