Blogs are one of the City of Decatur’s communication tools and offer the opportunity to invite conversation with the community.


The City of Decatur is pleased to begin posting blogs from city departments on its website. Comments, suggestions, ideas, feedback and questions are welcome and encouraged. Some blogs offer basic information and others are designed to promote dialogue. The following guidelines address what belongs in a civic forum and comment submissions will be moderated based on the following comment policy:

  • Stay on topic. Comments and/or links to outside websites/sources should relate to the topic being discussed in the original post
  • Keep it clean. Comments should not contain profanity, racial slurs or any other derogatory terms
  • Personal attacks are taboo. Comments should not contain personal or defamatory remarks or attacks
  • Agree to disagree. Reasonable arguments for opposing views are encouraged. A posted comment is the opinion of the poster only. Publication of the comment does not imply endorsement or agreement by the author of the blog or the City of Decatur
  • Campaigning belongs elsewhere. This blog is not the place to endorse candidates or a particular stance on currently active ballot measures
  • This comment policy may be revised at any time
  • Comment submissions that repeatedly violate this policy may be prohibited
