City rejects Facebook page

WAUKEE (KWWL) -- City officials in Waukee have rejected a city Facebook page and voted to trademark the city's name to avoid its unauthorized use.

A page on the popular social networking site, Facebook, was created by Councilman Isaiah McGhee, who says he was trying to give residents a place to discuss the city's workings.  McGhee's site contained a photo of a city sign, the phone number for city hall and a link to the city's official web site.

Councilwoman Darlene Stanton says it appeared as if it was a city sponsired site.  At the city's request Facebook officials removed the page.
