The City of Findlay has changed its website domain to FindlayOhio.gov, from FindlayOhio.com.
Mayor Christina Muryn says, as part of the city’s ongoing efforts to increase security and accountability, they’ve migrated all of their sites and emails to a .gov domain.
“The .gov domain is a reliable indicator that the site you are visiting is in fact a certified US government organization, as they are only attainable by US government agencies,” the mayor said.
Emails or links to the city’s old .com domain will automatically forward to the new .gov domain.
The city reminds people that, when online or receiving emails always be sure to confirm the email address and never provide sensitive information via unsecure sources.
The city points out that it would never ask for personal identifying information over email, such as social security numbers or banking information.
