Common Cause Report: Transparency in Massachusetts Municipal Websites

A redesigned website was launched in 2008 in order to improve usability and add electronic government features.  We would like to hear from users, so please send comments on your experience using the new site to the Webmaster

Major decisions and changes on the website included:

  • New domain name
  • Simple home page with portals;
  • Dropdown menus on every page;
  • Individual pages for standing boards and committees;
  • Frequently Asked Questions and How Do I? Pages; and
  • A new email subscription feature.

This redesign continues to be a work in progress, with new features planned over the next few years.  Website maintenance is done by existing employees who serve as department Web Editors.  Additional interactive features for the future include a document center, fillable forms, electronic permitting, and customer request tracking. As the website continues to evolve, visiting this site on the Internet will become more and more of an effective alternative to making a trip to the Town Office Building.
