Here's how Purcellville, Virginia uses Polco.
Perhaps most interesting in Purcellville has been the focus on geographic answers to questions that affect different neighborhoods and their residents in different ways. Whether looking at potential bike path fixes or a three way stop-sign, the use of geographic breakdowns has helped the Council consider all voices, while taking particular note of those most affected by proposed changes.
As new topics come before council for consideration, this input has helped both educate the community and help build trust that government is listening. As engagement grows using Polco’s online tools, residents gain confidence that elected officials have their interests in mind.
