Social Media Platform Disclaimer
The purpose of Ypsilanti Township social media platforms is to present matters of public interest in Ypsilanti Township for its many residents, businesses and visitors. Please note that they are both monitored and/or moderated for appropriateness according to guidelines established based on industry-wide best practices and liability concerns.
Ypsilanti Township’s social media platforms are a place for collecting suggestions, new ideas, and to encourage conversations among the people it serves; not a substitute channel for services or general questions.
Do not submit unsolicited proposals or other business ideas or inquiries through this media; these sites are not to be used for contracting or commercial business.
Do not submit any claim, demand, informal or formal complaint, or any other form of legal and/or administrative notice or process.
Ypsilanti Township’s social media platforms are not to be used to report criminal activity. If you have information for law enforcement, please contact your local police agency.
We expect conversations to follow the rules of polite discourse and we ask that participants treat each other, as well as our employees, with respect. For the benefit of robust discussion, we ask that comments remain "on-topic." This means that comments posted must relate to the topic that is being discussed and/or congruent with the nature of the social media platform and its nature of business or service.
We will not allow comments that include:
- profanity and vulgar or abusive language
- personal attacks of any kind
- threats of physical or bodily harm
- advocating an illegal activity
- sensitive information (for example, information that could compromise public safety)
- offensive comments containing terms that target or disparage any ethnic, racial, religious or other groups
- off-topic comments (if you have topics you'd like to hear more about, please suggest them by submitting e-mail to us at [email protected])
- questions from the media
- infringement or violation of existing copyrights or trademarks
- spam, or commercial or non-commercial promotion of a business, service, political organization, or individual
- identical posts by the same user (please don't submit over and over expecting the post to show up faster), multiple users (a group of people sending identical messages, or one person submitting under different aliases); in the case of identical posts, we will post the first submission
If comments containing any of the above-listed restricted content are posted, Ypsilanti Township reserves the right to delete submissions that violate any of the above-stated restrictions.
Please note that the comments expressed by community members on any Ypsilanti Township social media platform do not reflect the opinions and position of the Ypsilanti Township government or its officers and employees.

If you do voluntarily include personally-identifiable information in your comment or post, your comment may or may not be removed. If your comment is posted, Ypsilanti Township holds no liability in the release of this information.

Any advertising found on an Ypsilanti Township social media platform is controlled by the owner of that website and not the Township-sponsored account holder; Ypsilanti Township does not control what advertising appears on these pages as it is operating on a third-party website not owned or operated wholly by Ypsilanti Township or its departments and agencies.
