Scheduled WEPA Upgrades

On Friday, November 22, 2013 at 3:00 AM CST, WEPA will perform upgrades to our document conversion component and our kiosk application.  The document conversion component will be changed to prevent an extra page being added to some duplex print jobs that are submitted via our website and mobile apps, and this also includes changes to improve print speed.  The kiosk application changes are performance enhancements and there are no changes to user functions. During this upgrade web and mobile uploads as well as the kiosk application may be temporarily unavailable.

Win Cash – Roanoke Prevention Alliance Survey

Win Cash - Roanoke Prevention Alliance Survey

The Roanoke Prevention Alliance (RPA) is implementing a Young Adult Drinking Behaviors Survey focused on 18 to 24 year olds that live in Roanoke City.  The purpose of the survey is to identify ways to reduce alcohol related motor vehicle crashes.

The RPA is asking you to help by completing this very short survey.  If you are one of the first 250 people to complete the survey you will get a $5 gift card from either Sheetz or Kroger.  The survey link is:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YASRoanokeCity REMEMBER: Ages 18 – 24 and Roanoke City Residents only.

This survey is completely anonymous and in no way can responses be tracked back to the person taking the survey.  At the completion of the survey respondents will click on an external link to keep responses anonymous and to complete the registration form so the gift card can be mailed.  Thank you for your willingness to help the Roanoke Prevention Alliance reach its goal of reducing alcohol related motor vehicle crashes in Roanoke City.
