External Sites/Links:

  • Q: You really want us to list or link to your site (or a site that you think we would be interested in), will we do to it?
    A: No. It is against the City of Canton's policy to add references or links to our Web site that go to entities that we do not already have a pre-existing professional relationship.
    Of those entities that we do have a pre-existing professional relationship with, we only link to information that is: centric to Canton, fits into the goals for this web site, not overtly or covertly commercial in nature, and that our citizens will find useful. We also reserve the right to allow or refuse to post any link for any, or no, reason. We are working to make this web site a haven for the citizens of Canton to come and get the information they are looking for from their local government, we will not allow that standard to be diluted with links that do not move us toward that goal.
