Wellesley’s spiffy new town website has gone live, providing a more organized and easier to navigate base online whether you are on a desktop of mobile device.
The town, which worked with a third-party outfit on the project, says it has optimized the site to put services and information most frequently accessed, such as paying bills and getting info on the RDF, front and center.
You can personalize the site by creating an account, so that you mainly see what you really want to see. Though you can also forego exposing all of your info, and just sign up for email or text newsletters and alerts (and there are now a zillion of these from which to choose, so be careful not to overwhelm yourself). New features under consideration are online permit and license applications.
The site consolidates meeting agendas and minutes, though this doesn’t really fix the issue of some board/committee minutes talking a long time to show up.
The only real oversight we noticed on the site is the one from the Community page shown below. But there is a page on the site where the public can share concerns with the town… so we’re confident that this will be fixed.
