Compliance

Public Disclosure

All social media communications, messages, and comments are subject to State of Florida open records laws. All of the Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County social media sites shall comply with Chapter 119 of Florida State Statutes. The Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County will retain all social media content and interactions on The Children’s Services Council of St. Lucie County owned social media accounts in accordance with applicable law. Wherever possible, such sites shall clearly indicate that any articles and other content posted or submitted for posting are currently subject to public disclosure.

Family Friendly Social Media

The social media tools used by the Council are intended to be “family friendly.” When applicable, the Council uses platform provided content moderation/filtering options to limit foul or obscene content. We retain the discretion to determine if comments violate our policy and reserve the right to remove and/or disallow those comments to be posted, subject to applicable public records laws. Removal of posts does not mean the destruction of posts. We recognize that social media and its platforms are available 24/7 and comments can be posted at any time. However, as responsible stewards of local resources, moderating and posting comments should only be expected to occur during normal business hours.
