Links from the City of Wauwatosa Website

The purpose of the City of Wauwatosa’s website is to provide citizens, businesses and visitors a wide range of information about the City.  As part of this public purpose, the website includes links to outside websites compatible with this goal. The City has no control over the format, content, or accuracy of any information found on any website not a part of City’s website (specifically, any website not a part of the domains “wauwatosa.net” or “ci.wauwatosa.wi.us”).  The City is not responsible for, does not endorse, and cannot assure the accuracy of information on outside websites. 

The following criteria will be used in considering requests for links from the City of Wauwatosa’s website.  If a particular request is not granted, the requester may ask the Common Council to decide whether to approve the request. The Council will review the merits of the requested link, keeping in mind the following criteria, to determine whether it serves the overall purpose of the City’s website.

The City reserves the right to determine how and where external links will appear on its website; i.e. what page the link appears on and where the link is placed on the page.

Linking to the City of Wauwatosa Website

Links to the City's website are permissible, and are in fact encouraged. However, we do ask that, in most cases, links point to the home page (http://www.wauwatosa.net/) rather than to any specific internal page, as those links may change from time to time.
