CitySpokes provides access to 30,000 cities and all counties in the United States. Rather than clicking on a state and then selecting the city or county from a drop down box, if you add Quick Links to the cities and counties you want to view, they are only a single click away.
When you go to any CitySpokes Home Page, our most popular Filter Pages are displayed so they are one click away. You can see the remaining 23, but you must first click the "View All Website Filters" graphic and then click the one you want to visit. However, you can customize your Home Page so whenever you Sign In, you will see the Filters you are interested in viewing with a single click.
Read the latest News Items, Specials, Events and Help Wanted Ads posted by local businesses and organizations. With the Covid-19 pandemic right now, and the various phases businesses are going through, you will discover what each business is doing to provide the safest possible environment, as well as what expectations they have for customers that come into their store.
Also, take advantage of the Specials, know about the Events ahead of time instead of afterwards, and find that perfect new job.

Are you ever driving around, or walking through the streets of your city or county, and see something you think needs to be fixed? Or have you every wondered what the status of a government project was? If so, you can submit you messages to your local government officials through CitySpokes, including a picture if you think that would clarify your message, and then wait for your answer.
You might have seen a streetlight out, or a pothole, or maybe you wondered what the plans were for replacing that bridge. Now you can get the answers to your questions. And if the government official is seeing a trend in questions, chances are more people than you have the same question, and the government official could add a Frequently Asked Question to their City or County website within CitySpokes.
Take advantage of the scope and reach of CitySpokes by turning your no longer needed items into cash. Depending on what you are selling, you can post your Classified Ad at the city, county, state, region or national level, depending on how far you believe people will drive or search for your items. For example, a normal crib would most likely be sold at the city level, but an RV might yield a higher sold price if posted at the national level.
The price of Classified Ads is based on approximate site visitor reach. So, prices for smaller cities are lower than larger cities, and prices for counties, states, regions and national levels generally increase as you move up levels. Additionally, when purchasing Classified Ad packages, the more you purchase, the lower the individual ad price. Classified Ads are also "reusable," in that once you pay for an ad, you can reuse the same ad by changing the picture, text, and even the Category.
Classified Ad Packages are purchased monthly, and you can cancel at any time. For example, if you purchased a One-Ad Package, you could use that ad for three days to sell a laptop, switch the ad and sell your bicycle five days later, and continue switching to sell different items before the month ends. You can continue to pay the same monthly fee until all your items are sold.
Finally, when you post Classified Ads, you can set the "security" level for the display of the contact instructions you enter. Even if you set your ad to Minimal Security, your contact instructions are not displayed until the site visitor clicks to view it. When they do, we display and save their IP address so it is not completely anonymous. You have three security choices:
