~ MILTON LOCAL ~
Click on, http://miltonlocal.com something new and exciting . Keep up with what is happening in MILTON. The last few years our local media has cut back on covering our area and there is a lot going on citizens need to know, so the city has developed a media source of its own. I am excited because so much is changing and much progress is being made in our community that our citizens need to know about. With the cooperation of Santa Rosa Medical Center, Whiting Field and Milton High School we are launching this new source of information. The city has so much coming up along with those partnering with us. This is a good way to keep you in the know. I want your input as we move forward as to how we can improve our message. As of the 2010 census, Milton, FL. was the 17th fastest growing city in the state of Florida. No media ever covered that important fact. We want to keep all the information positive and productive for our citizens. I encourage Churches, Civic organizations and our schools to join with us in providing information on important happenings they are involved with so we can keep providing positive, productive information to the public. Help spread the word that" Milton Local" is good source of information to keep up with what is happening in our GREAT community!
