— The Town of Mooers has a new face, online that is.

A new website has been designed by Secretary to the Supervisor, Rena Bosley in order to display information about the town to the public in a more accessible and appealing way.

Bosley explained that the old site was never user- friendly and so she wanted to use her skills in graphic design to put together a new one. It took her about three days to combine all the information she had and put the site out there.

“I’m trying to get everyone’s opinion on it,” Bosley said.

She also said that she’s looking for input on the information, content, and is encouraging others to send her anything they think the website is lacking.

The layout of the new website is easy to navigate with a row of tabs at the top of the page labeled Home, News, Calendar, Departments, Minutes, Forms, and Contact Us. Each tab also includes a photo at the top.

The Home page offers essential information such as the town’s address, office hours, and upcoming town events. Also, the town’s slogan: “A Great Place to Work and Live” is right below the welcoming.

On the News page are the town’s weather forecast which can be clicked on to check out the extended forecast and any important news, like the library securing another grant for construction.

Continuing on to the Calendar tab, a visitor will find reminders about important dates such as the Republican and Democrat Caucuses, and the link to click on the agenda for the recent Zoning Board of Appeals meeting at the Mooers Courtroom.

The Departments page on the new website also has the slogan that was featured on the Home page. Every department from Assessor to Zoning can be clicked on, bringing up another page showing the supervisor of the department, as well as office hours, and a phone number, followed by information that is specific for that department.
