A proposal to upgrade City Hall’s presence on the Internet has received unanimous endorsement from the City Council’s Finance Committee.
If the full council approves the $19,200 proposal, a local firm, Web Solutions LLC, will completely make over the city’s current Web site, which city officials have admitted lacks a certain user-friendly quality. The site should offer information on most things governmental, from biographies of city councilors to answers to commonly asked planning and zoning questions. Web browsers should also be able to snip quickly through City Hall’s red tape, as applications, from dog licenses to fishing licenses, will be available on the Internet.
“It’s like City Hall being open 24 hours a day,” Councilor Keith Gordon said.
