Northampton's New Website to be more user-friendly [video]

"One of the things I did when I got elected was formed a Web and IT Advisory Committee and a website redesign was the first item on that list."

This morning Mayor Narkewicz propped his iMac on the reception desk of the Mayor's office to tour the town's brand new website.  The site was developed by CivicPlus, the same firm behind the town websites for Amherst, East Longmeadow, and other municipalities across the country.  Users can nowrequest services (such as fixing a pothole or broken streetlight) from town departments, get updates via text message or email, and start a discussion thread on the site's forum.
