City Manager’s Update Content Criteria

Every city department has been asked to focus on increasing participation in the weekly newsletter to City Council (City Manager’s Update). Examples of the news the content team in City Hall is looking for and deadline info follows:

Submissions:         Send all submissions to

Deadlines:           The deadline for submitting content is 5 pm each Wednesday

 Content:              As has been the case in the past, items submitted for the CMU may be edited and while not all submissions may end up in the Update, please send materials City Council will find informative and useful. They use the front cover for a feature story or two since that’s prime real estate. We encourage you to pitch good stories that should be on the front.

Bi-weekly, the front cover is a fun facts piece about Virginia Beach called “Who Knew?” Any fun facts for that is always welcome.

The remainder of the Update is separated into categories and you can direct submissions to one of these sections:

  • Awards and Recognition
  • City Improvements/Closures
  • New and Noteworthy
  • Upcoming Events
  • Attachments

Please contact Teresa Diaz with any questions.
