What is RSS? RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It is a way for you to have the latest online news, agendas, or calendar events delivered to you automatically, rather than having to check our website periodically to see if there is anything new.
Just point your web browser or RSS reader URL at:
For agendas: http://www.ci.medford.or.us/genrss.asp?Type=agendas
For calendar items: http://www.ci.medford.or.us/genrss.asp?Type=calendar
For public hearing notices: http://www.ci.medford.or.us/genrss.asp?Type=page&navid=2066
For employment opportunities: http://agency.governmentjobs.com/jobfeed.cfm?agency=medfordor
In order to view a news feed you must have a piece of software called a News Reader. If you see a bunch of gobbledygook (HTML code) instead of news when trying to view a news feed, you probably don't have a reader installed on your computer.
Where do I get a RSS reader? The latest versions of popular web browsers (Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 3+, Safari 3+, etc.) have news readers built in. Many smart phones also have built-in news readers. Personalized online portals such as iGoogle or MyYahoo! have built-in readers. There are also many free stand-alone readers available, such as the Google Reader.
Can't I just get news via e-mail instead? Yes! You can also subscribe to the City of Medford news and other information via email. However, this information is only e-mailed once per day, whereas RSS news is delivered as soon as it is posted.
