The Village Listserv (firstname.lastname@example.org) has the goal of helping residents foster a close community.
The Listserv conveys up-to-the-minute and temporary information. It is used to send notices to people on an e-mail list (kept private) that is maintained by Village officials. It is a great way for everyone to stay in touch.
For example, residents post information about lost pets, look for help with lawn mowing and snow shoveling, and express opinions about things in the Village. Organizations also announce yard sales, freebies, and social functions in the Village.
The rule of thumb is that if the post is appropriate for the Post Office bulletin board, it is typically appropriate for the Listserv. No personal attacks, no spam, no out of area business posts, and no “me too” posts. A “me too” post would be a post simply agreeing with another post, or notice that you will be attending an event—it adds no value to the list and is more appropriate for the private email option.
