Offsite Link Policy
The mission of the City of Littleton's website, www.littletongov.org, is to provide residents, businesses and visitors online access to government departments, services and programs. From time to time the city may wish to post links to other sites which, in the opinion of the city, provide more information to our residents, businesses, and visitors about additional government services and information, or other information about the community, including festivals, cultural events, and local news. The city cannot promote any organization on its website unless that organization has an official relationship with the city such as a contract, event sponsorship, agreement, partnership, etc.
Library Link Policy
The purpose of libraries throughout the ages has been to provide knowledge and information to their patrons. Therefore, Bemis Library web pages shall be exempted from this general offsite link policy. Links in the library's portion of the site shall be limited to research sites which may be segregated by type of site, age group or other patron categories; other libraries or groups of libraries such as Colorado Virtual Library, Prospector, or the Jefferson County Public Library; or sites maintained by professional library groups.
Some of the links made available through the City of Littleton's website will take the user off the city's site. These links are followed by an external link indicator: The Internet sites available through these links, and the materials that the user may find there are not under the control of the City of Littleton. Therefore, the city cannot and does not make any representation to the user about these sites or the materials available there. The fact that the City of Littleton has made these links available is not an endorsement or recommendation by the city of any of these sites or any material found there. The city is providing these links only as a convenience to the user.
Links to Candidates and Political Groups
In order to avoid the potential violation of the Colorado Fair Campaign Practices Act, Article 45, Title 1, C.R.S., links shall not be made to sites that are associated with, sponsored by or serve a candidate for elected office; any political party; or organization supporting or seeking to defeat any candidate for elective office or ballot proposal. During an election year, the communications department, with assistance from the city clerk, may release a statement which will provide an overview of the election process and announce the city council candidates who have been certified for the ballot by the city clerk. The city will not publish announcements/press releases from council members or council candidates announcing their intent to run or not to run for reelection on either the city website or in the Littleton Report.
