After months of backup, the town of Greenville launched its new website Monday, Feb. 6, hoping to make outreach between residents and individual departments more efficient.

The site, built by Virtual Town & Schools, has been in development since August. It will be updated by individual boards but operated through the office of town administration.

“I think the departments are excited because they’ll be able to upload their own minutes and agendas, and messages and news,” Town Administrator Kelley Collins said.

Virtual Town & Schools has built websites for several New Hampshire municipalities. It is based in Boxborough, Massachusetts.

For designing and launching the site, Greenville will pay $4,500 over three years, in equal payments. Additionally, it will pay $1,750 annually for site maintenance and upkeep.

“This summer, we lost a longtime employee [who took a job in New Boston],” Collins said. “She was the one who was maintaining and designed the pages for the website.”

Residents will be able to access up-to-date information, which was a struggle before the relaunch.

The previous site’s most recent Board of Selectman attachment was dated from July.

“Hopefully it’ll be more active and robust,” she said.

The web address — greenvillenh.org — remains the same, but the visual is completely different, bringing the formerly basic HTML site into Web 2.0.

The relaunch comes only a week after the Mascenic Regional School District’s own newly designed site launched. It’s new address is www.mascenic.org. The Jaffrey-Rindge School District is in the process of creating a new site as well.
