City of Perrysburg Web site crashes; new look to be unveiled next week

The City of Perrysburg Web site has been down since at least Friday and resident calls have been hitting the city offices.

City Administrator Bridgette Kabat said the Internet provider, Avatar, and its contracted server crashed. The site is at: www.ci.perrysburg.oh.us.

A new Web site was planned to be unveiled by the city Nov. 1, but Ms. Kabat said that date is being pushed up to next week because of these problems.

"It has a new look and feel," she said. "It is more user friendly."

But when the new Web site look is revealed, it will still have several areas "under construction" because the city thought it had several more weeks to prepare it. Ms. Kabat said its information technology staff will be "ripping their hair out" this week trying to get it up and working.

Calls have been coming into the city office and then directed to which department can best answer questions.

With the Web site down, the city council agenda has not been posted for residents to look at. Today's meeting at 6:30 p.m. will have two items about improvements on Jefferson Street and a vote for two renewed taxes for street lights and tree maintenance. 

For a property owner, the light tax is about $15 a year and the tree tax is around $10 a year.
