LAND MANAGEMENT - NEW TOWN WEBSITE
We are excited to share with you that the Town of Spencer has a brand new website. We are still rolling it out and there are some on-going updates but overall it is up and operational. Please explore the website and tell us what you think. We have designed it to improve communications, marketing, transparency, and to be more interactive with your town government. Here are some neat new options I’d like to share with you:
Alerts: In the upper left hand corner of the site you will see an “Alert”. It currently displays “Please Enjoy our New Website: We’re Glad You’re Here”. In this area, we will also list storm warnings, watches and general alerts for the Town.
Social Media: Along the top of the page, we have Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. These are the Social Media accounts of the Town. Please follow us on them.
Weather: In the upper right hand corner you will see the temperature, clear or rainy regarding the weather in Spencer.
Translation: The website can be translated in many languages to suit your viewing needs. This is located beside the weather widget in the upper right hand corner.
ADA Compliant: Along the left side of the page, you will see a button with a wheelchair on it and a share link beneath it. If you press the wheelchair icon you can change the settings to off for “High Contrast, Yellow Links, Grey Scale, and Underline Links” to assist with your viewing pleasures. The share button helps you to share the page with whom you like.
Banner: Along the banner we will feature pictures throughout the Town and videos from time to time. If you have some great pictures of the town, please forward them to the Director of Land Management.
Quick Links - We have some quick links to assist you beneath the banner. The Contact Us helps direct you to the specific person that can help with your needs. Bill Pay allows you to pay the town a permit fee, tax lien, civil penalty or any other item with a credit card (Currently Being Developed), Calendar for Town Events and Schedules, Bidding Link & Registration to be a vendor for town services and view available opportunities, and Sign-Up for Page Alerts. If you are interested when a specific page is updated like meeting agendas or minutes, just sign up here and when a form is added, you will receive an e-mail.
Latest News: We will feature News Stories of what’s happening throughout the Town from the various town departments and community events. They will appear in this area beneath the quick links.
COMMUNITY: (Top Bar) This drop down will be tailored toward the happenings and activities within the community. Local businesses and attractions can be found here as well.
