TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the launch of the City of Troy’s official YouTube channel. Available at www.youtube.com/troyny, the channel will feature video content, live-streamed events, and other announcements from the Mayor’s office and City Hall as part of the Madden administration’s continued efforts to better connect Troy residents with their local government.

Mayor Madden said, “Expanding the public’s access to what’s happening in our community remains a priority for my administration. Every day, residents connect with City Hall to request services and communicate with staff via phone, email and, more frequently, social media to find the information they need quickly and efficiently. By harnessing the power of online tools like YouTube, we can help better inform and educate the public on how my administration is working to serve the residents, families and businesses of Troy, while highlighting our City’s diverse neighborhoods and those who make our community such a wonderful place to live.”
