Larimer County Offers RSS Subscription

Larimer County Colorado has offered an e-mail subscription service of web updates to the county's web site, The Virtual Courthouse, since 1998. This service has grown to 22 separate mailings including job openings, news releases, emergency information, road closures, bids & proposals, various board agendas, and more. Recently this service has been expanded to include an RSS feed of all subscriptions for those who prefer to use a newsreader instead of receiving e-mail. Information on this service can be found at www.larimer.org/subscriptions.cfm, and the RSS feed is www.larimer.org/feed.xml.
