Village of Scotia residents will now finally be able to enjoy the convenience of an official Web site. The board of trustees, along with the mayor, marked the official unveiling of the Web site at the Wednesday, Sept. 12, meeting.
Trustee Joe Rizzo said the village board is very excited about the long-awaited official Web site at www.villageofscotia.org, which will allow the community to have a quick and accessible source of village of information.
Our residents now have a place where they can conveniently log on to check out important notices, times for meetings, announcements and so on. We know that our residents have been waiting for a place that tells when governments are and where. Now they finally have it, said Rizzo.
The village has a contract for the Web site with Police Chief John Pytlovany who is also the owner of CheifWeb solutions. Pytlovany will maintain the Web site for the village, including providing updated information on a bi-weekly basis, or sooner if necessary. Residents can already look on the Web site to see information posted about village events such as Halloween.
"We will keep the site updated with meeting dates, public announcements, along with any contact information our community may need," said Pytlovany.
The Web site lists all the board names and contact information, as well as police department, fire department and village hall information. Residents can look up any part of the village code through the site, in addition to any seasonal ordinances. Links to county and state government offices are also accessible through the site.
Rizzo said the board is considering adding pictures of all the trustees. He said it is their goal to let people in the community put a face with a name so they may feel more comfortable with communicating with their elected officials.
