CLARKS GREEN- The main topic of discussion at the Aug. 21 Clarks Green monthly meeting was the borough’s new website which, according to Councilman David Rinaldi, should be up and running by the end of this week.
Linked to the web site will be a Facebook and a Twitter account. He also explained that any change to either of those two accounts will be automatically reflected on the website.
The website will have many other features, such as an event calendar that can also be updated to include maps to the events. The final version of the site will be tailored made to be viewed on any platform, whether it be computer, phone, or tablet.
The site will also include links to other municipal websites, police and fire departments, and a centennial website, keeping residents updated about next year’s celebration.
Due to the new website and domain name, council email addresses will now include their name and clarksgreen.info. However, the email addresses will not be active until the site is active.
Council also voted to appoint Joseph Barrasse to serve the remainder of the term left by the resignation of Councilman Victor Alberigi. Council also voted on removing the interim treasurer title from Jan Brown, who also serves as secretary, and promoting her to full treasurer while retaining her services as secretary.
Councilwoman Marnie O’Dea Palmer stated that the Abington Council of Governments would resume meetings after a summer hiatus on Thursday, Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. at the Clarks Green Borough Building.
