City To Discuss New Social Media Policies

The San Luis Obispo City Council plans to review a new policy regarding social media. According to KSBY, the new policy advises elected officials from “mixing” city business on private social media accounts. It comes following a rash of complaints from some residents, who claimed Mayor Heidi Harmon had violated their First Amendment rights by blocking them from her social media accounts. Public comment will be heard before today’s virtual meeting and during the public hearing portion of the meeting.
