CITY WEB SITE SUBJECT OF CONVERSATION

 

Mayor Alan Gaffner used the new business portion of Tuesday’s Greenville City Council meeting to spotlight the lack of information on the City of Greenville’s web site, that would be useful to people relocating to town. He pointed out that one executive who recently relocated to Greenville found our site lacking the basics he needed to research info for his move. 

 

City Manager, Dave Willey, pointed out there are professional web designers that specialize in municipal web sites, that he thought could do the work for around 15 thousand dollars paid over a 3 year period with the work completed quickly. Councilman Will Boyd thought there was talent at Greenville College that could do the same job much more economically. The city and the Chamber of Commerce maintain the web site.
