Board approves Web site redesign
TEMPERANCE — Bedford Township will be getting a new Web site.
The board has approved spending $7,100 for a redesign of the township’s nine-year-old site, which members agreed was out of date and not user-friendly.
Revize Software Systems of Troy, Mich., is to be hired for the one-time redesign and is to be paid $2,460 as an annual support fee. Clerk Trudy Hershberger said the firm charged less than other companies the township considered. The new site will allow staff members to make changes to their respective pages and be able to carry streaming video of board meetings.
In other business, the board agreed to waive the Lambertville Civic Club’s $25 fee for a noise ordinance permit for its Summerfest to be held next month at Parmelee Park.
The permit will be good for June 21, 22, and 23.
