Social Media Information

-A A +A

Starting in December 2014, the City of Waltham launched its official social media accounts. Utilizing some of the exciting digital capabilities that are now available, we have plans to use these various social media platforms to better enhance communication with our residents. We have categorized and prioritized the most common needs of Waltham’s citizens to ensure that the information that gets shared has the highest quality of effect.

One of our major goals for the City of Waltham Social Media is to provide timely and up to date information for Waltham residents. We will do so by providing alerts, updates, and useful information from various resources within the city. We encourage interaction with our followers, however, please make note that our role in terms of responding to inquiries is to direct you to the proper department(s) who are best able to provide accurate information & results for your specific need. We specifically are attempting not to engage in open discussions, debates, and/or be involved with other back and forth communications related to public opinion. You should also make note that our social media accounts are not monitored 24-7. We do, however appreciate your input and ensure that the appropriate department(s) will consider those thoughts.

Our social media platforms are dynamic and ever evolving and we thank each citizen for their involvement.


Waltham's Social Media Coordinator is Abby Auld. You can contact her by submitting this form. 

Below we've listed all official city accounts. Please be sure to read our social media terms/rules and our social media policy.
