Notwithstanding the criteria listed above, the County reserves the right to post, refuse to post, or remove any event from its Facebook page at any time, without notice. These rules might sound strict and contain a bit of legal-sounding jargon, but please keep in mind, the overall goal is simple: to ensure that we can all participate online in a respectful, relevant way.

The County is not responsible for comments made by subscribers or members related to its social media applications and reserves the right to remove any content that is inappropriate for any reason and at any time.
