The city of Murphy is always looking for ways to better communicate with citizens in the community.

They did just that with the launch of the MindMixer solution system last week.

The system allows for residents to actively and easily submit ideas, comments, suggestions, questions and observations on city related topics.

“MindMixer is a way for the community to interact,” city of Murphy Information Technology Manager Wendle Medford said. “We can carry on dialogues, talk about ideas, share impressions and open up new topics of conversation. It’s like an informal town hall meeting conducted online.”

The program brings a sense of order and direction, unlike previous online forums.

“Topics of a high value to the city administration or the council take a high priority,” Medford said. “Once introduced, the topic forms the basis for questions, comments and other input. Discussion with other contributors and city officials creates a lively and productive marketplace of ideas.”

Once ideas and comments are submitted they are listed on an activity page.

On that page, participants can rate, sort and add their own comments to the discussion.

Other features offered on MindMixer are surveys, map sitting, voting, rating of ideas, photos and other interactive activities.

The solution also has the ability to augment periodic citizen surveys so they can facilitate feedback from citizens year around, give citizens the ability to submit ideas, suggestions and reaction, without the hassle of waiting on a annual or biennial survey.

In order to participate, citizens are required to create a profile and use that identity when involved in discussions.

For more information on the solution visit http://murphytx.mindmixer.com.

You can also register on the city of Murphy website at www.murphytx.org.
