The City may provide links to Google maps for the purpose of providing directions to a city facility or event. These maps are for the convenience of our site visitors and citizens. The City is not responsible for the information on those sites or any driving directions they may provide to access our city facilities. We recognize that there are many products available that provide free mapping services online. We chose just one product to use consistently on our Web site and have received permission to link to them. If you have another free online Web mapping service that you prefer, you are welcome to look up the address on their service.

  1. no relationship with the City is implied or expressed by the link or the context in which the link appears, and
