Hello Electors of Hortonia!
You've stumbled upon this site and have discovered the Clerk's Blog. Congratulations!
You can download the Town Board Meeting Minutes and other documents I've posted such as ordinances. The documents are listed under 'media'. If you click "view all media" then you can sort by name, show as list (to view descriptions), click on tags, etc.
The web site uses a back-end platform that leverages social networking technologies. Not all of them are useful for a municipal web site and I do not intend to try to make the site look like Jr's Facebook page. But internet technologies are marching in that direction, so it won't look quite like Grandpa's web 1.0 site, either.
In the end, the web site will have more of the look and feel of a conventional site, but will have new-fangled technology under the hood - such as the ability to use Tags to locate a Town document, for example.
Site development will be an evolving project.
My top objective is to make documents available to the residents so that folks can make educated decisions; I'll also try to get forms/applications on the site.
Eventually, I'll get more WIKI pages (answers to Frequently Asked Questions - like about dog licenses, permits, assessments) - those pages take time to build.
As the site matures, the navigation and usability of the site will improve. It's clunky - I know.
Please, give it some time.
If you have questions, comments, concerns, etc., please let me know. And, if you want something specific included in the site, then please e-mail me: email@example.com
Also, if you have digital photos of Town related stuff, you can e-mail them to me. I'd love to have the photos taken at the Annual Town meeting, for example.
