CROWN POINT - An electronic newsletter is now available to Crown Point residents wishing to keep up with town government.
Anyone who wants to receive the newsletter can contact Supervisor Bethany Kosmider via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Plans are also being made for a town website and a marketing brochure has been completed.
"We are hopeful to have a website up and running in the near future to use as a promotional and informational tool," Kosmider said. "A Crown Point resident has stepped up to the task and has designed a professional brochure that the town can use to attract business. Still looking to design a brochure to attract tourism, we are working on identifying strengths and attractions."
Kosmider said public information and participation is a priority for the town board.
"I have been especially pleased to see the large numbers of citizens who are coming out to attend our town board meetings each month," she said. "Everyone has been courteous and follows the rules of the meetings. I encourage everyone to get involved and participate on a committee."
The town board meets at 6 p.m. at the town hall on the second Thursday of each month.
The Crown Point board has also decided to tape its meetings and air them on the cable television public access channel it shares with Moriah.
"With the Open Meetings Law and Open Town Government format, I deemed it beneficial to film the town board meetings every month," Kosmider said. "These town board meetings will be played on an access channel on Time Warner Cable TV in the very near future and for the time being, we will be sharing an access channel with Moriah. When we have a need for more time and space, we may have our own access channel.
"For those who do not have cable, they can check out a copy of the meeting from the Hammond Library as you would a book and return it when you are done watching it," she said. "This is a method of keeping the people informed of what is going on in their town."
