NC Sun Blog
The NC Sun blog is a public communications effort published by the Office of City Council for the purposes of fostering an informed and engaged public that participates in public conversations.
The blog is titled "NC Sun" in honor of North Canton's former local newspaper the North Canton Sun, which historically provided the information needed for residents to stay informed but sadly ceased operations in 2001. This blog hopes to continue the tradition of that newspaper by ensuring citizens have free and easy access to information about City government. If you would like to explore historic North Canton Sun newspapers go to the North Canton Sun Archive maintained by the North Canton Public Library.
What can I find in this blog?
NC Sun currently produces three content types for readers; weekly Council Bulletins, monthly Municipal Mastery stories; and Quarterly City Newsletters. Each publication serves a different role in informing the public. Each type of blog can be subscribed to individually or all together at NorthCantonOhio.gov/subscribe.
Council bulletins are a weekly publication published generally on Tuesday of each week following Monday night City Council meetings. The bulletins are design to help residents and local businesses keep up with legislation currently before City Council and provide easy access and transparency to the local legislative process. The blogs are intended to take just 1-2 minutes to read allowing residents to learn about City Council without needing to watch an entire hour long meeting.
Municipal Mastery is a monthly blog series that provides in-depth information on a current or important issue of City government. The blogs take up to 15 minutes to read and are designed to help every resident gain a better understanding of the key functions of their local government or of major ongoing projects.
