NEW PUBLIC NOTICE PROCESS FOR THE ESCONDIDO TIMES-ADVOCATE & VALLEY ROADRUNNER
We are excited to announce that we have teamed up with Column, PBC, a public benefits corporation, to roll out a quicker and more efficient way for you to place public notices with our newspapers.
The transition to using Column is starting as of July 15th, 2021 and we (as well as the team at Column) are available to work closely with you.
Here are a few of the benefits of using Column to place public notices:
- Faster placement
- Fewer errors
- Control over content
- Upfront pricing and payment
- A digital archive of your notices, invoices paid, and affidavits
How does this affect me?
Column will be the system that handles the full process of your legal notices. You will be able to generate proofs and pricing estimates, submit notices, receive and pay invoices, and download and store digital affidavits all from within a single system.
Rather than submitting notices through our websites, by email or by “snail” mail, you should submit directly through the Column system. If you have trouble using Column, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and Column will work together to make sure your notice gets placed.
How do I get started?
If you’ll be the only user in Column, here’s how to register: https://www.notion.so/column/How-do-I-register-81328b737ea84d5eb3a527e8f11427f0
If you’re in an organization in which multiple users will be accessing Column, one person should create an organizational account, then invite the other users into it.
Once registered, you can start placing notices! Click the “Place notice” button in the lower-left corner of your Column dashboard. From there, you can enter your publication dates, upload notice content, and select how you want to receive your affidavit. You’re done! The system will notify you when we confirm the receipt of the notice, if we make any edits, and when an invoice and affidavit are ready.
