The city of Clearwater recognizes and appreciates the rights of all members of our online community to free speech and freedom of expression. All departmental social media sites and all comments posted, however, are regularly monitored by administrators who reserve the right to report to the host site obscenities and hate speech. Furthermore, users are subject to the host site's Terms of Service, and any user in violation of the Terms of Service will be reported.
Since departmental social media sites are a public forum for the city of Clearwater, any content posted is considered official business and is subject to proper retention and disclosure pursuant to Florida law.
Opinions expressed by visitors to the city of Clearwater’s social media sites do not reflect the opinions of the city of Clearwater.
Under Florida law, names, photos, social media posts, messages, e-mail addresses, and other information submitted to the host of this page or posted on this site are public records. If you do not want your information released in the response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail or messages to this host or post on this site. Instead, contact the corresponding department by phone.
