Village Listserv Rules/Guidelines
The Michigan Municipal League established a listserv for village officials
and employees to provide a mechanism for addressing issues of common
concern, and to share and benefit from each others experiences. To make
this a valuable experience for everyone on the listserv, we have developed
some membership and usage guidelines.
By joining and using the Michigan Municipal League's village listserv,
you agree to read and follow these rules and guidelines:
Membership is limited to current member General Law Village
or Home Rule Village officials and employees. The MML verifies applications
our municipal database.
Identify your name, village, and position with in all postings
The listserv will "turn over" once a year. You will be
asked to sign up and be added to the listserv once every year after
(if you resign from office/employment please notify us so we can
maintain an accurate list of current listserv members)
A list of listserv members will be made available to anyone
Only reply to the entire list when it contains information from
which everyone can benefit. If you want to reply to one person, do
hit the "reply" button--this will send your message to
everyone on the listserv. You can forward the email and copy and
email address of the person to whom you want to respond.
Fill in the subject line--this is for the benefit of receivers
to identify the content of the messages in their inboxes.
If you want to thank an individual for his/her answer, or
wish someone well, or communicate one-on-one, please do so to the individual,
the entire listserv. With a busy listserv, and with other emails
each member may be receiving on their own, email inboxes can quickly
Think of the listserv as an educational tool. It is a means of sharing information, documents, and past experiences with particular issues and problems. Please use it in the positive way it was intended—not as a forum for personal issues or agendas or private business use.
Last but not least, please be aware that communications
for a governmental purpose can be construed as public documents under
the Freedom of Information
Act. This is a responsibility that must be self-monitored. Be mindful
of what you say--it could become part of the public domain.
