Digital age

    Washington Township, NJ, is no longer on the list of municipalities lacking a website. The town debued its website, which will provide 24/7 access to a system that’s only open a few hours per week.

    The $2,400 site includes information and contacts, municipal budgets, bids and public notices. It can also be translated into 11 languages.

    Mayor Dudley Lewis told the Press of Atlantic City: “”It’s an additional means of communication that allows us to keep our residents informed of what’s going on in their local government.”
