City Of Boca Raton A Bit Behind With Sharing Hurricane Info


UPDATE: We just heard from the City’s new social media chief, Chrissy Biagiotti. Expect updates to Boca’s website soon but for now, she suggests monitoring Boca’s Facebook page  — as well as the City’s homepage.

While strongly believes that official information should be disseminated on a city’s official website, not solely on Facebook (which forces readers to be subjected to advertising to read official information), we appreciate that Boca’s public information outreach is a work in progress. We are thrilled that Chrissy is overseeing that work.

Welcome, Chrissy, to the job!

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The City of Boca Raton and the Boca Raton Police Department are among the best when it comes to social media, but when it comes to the City’s official website, it seems someone dropped the ball.

A quick Google search of “Hurricane Evacuation” and “City of Boca Raton” brings back this webpage which was last updated in 2012. While we appreciate that many like Facebook and Twitter, the first place most folks turn for official information is the official source — a City’s official website —  not social media.

Until the City of Boca Raton updates its “official” website, we encourage readers to visit Palm Beach County’s official page.

Although we suspect that after posting this, the City of Boca Raton will promptly update its information.
