We've been working to try to improve the content available on our website as we make strides to improve borough internet technologies. The homepage is designed to highlight new updates and point you to these new areas. All other areas should offer information and resources and we've tasked many of the departments in the borough to provide more information to residents. We're in the process of updating the DPW page, Building Department page, Police page, Department of Parks & Recreation page, Administration page, and many others. As we continue to build out information available on our website, we are looking to provide additional modern features we hope to implement later this year such as a more robust calendar and other user-specific pages. Additionally, we now provide a form to make website update requests to assist commissions, departments, and others to request changes. This will eventually be converted into a digital form like others in our new FILE•it service.
