I would love to see our new mayor get the village hall staff to update our village website. It is July of 2013 and schedule for recycling of waste is dated 2012. Nor is there an updated edition of our village newsletter.
Please, Ms. Mayor, I'm hoping that your administration will do a better job communicating with the citizens of Midlothian.(You certainly couldn't do worse.)

You do know that she just got in right? She hasn't been in office for but two months.

Plus, she is getting the website updated, but no one there seemed to know how to do it. I know for certain that many updates have already been made, mostly related to updating the staff pages (new chief, deputy chief, retirement and resignations, etc.) and that she has someone trying to learn the new system right now to get it updated and given a good overhaul to get rid of outdated information.

Chill for a minute, and stay tuned because it is coming.

Had you read them you'd know why. But since I suspect you were one of the ones that WROTE them, I think you know.

I was ignoring this because none of you added to the original content, but for the record 'wishlknew', all of those post numbers were removed simultaneously, not in two separate instances. When the posters get out of hand that badly, Topix actually does make it's presence known.

As for the website (if anyone actually cares), I see a lot of updates on it, but yes, the recycling calender is still the 2012 one. I'm not sure why they bother posting that since it's maintained by Allied Waste.

What ever happened to posting the village committee and board meeting agendas 48 hours in advance as the law requires?

I'm not sure if the other committees started abiding by the Open Meetings Act yet TBH, and if they haven't it definitely needs to be addressed.

As for posting on the website, I agree they should be doing it, but I think for now it's always been printed and posted up at the hall. There's a lot the new mayor is doing so hopefully with her delegating the website details away to someone else these things will start happening and not falling through the cracks. Dunno, but there's a lot more I care to see happen first.

$14,000+ spent on a website theoretically no one can operate on a reliable basis (it's "plumbing" not "pumbing" another typo for my list).

Worst part is that although they removed Mayor Stephens name a whole lot faster than the months and months of Murawski Memories, our new Mayor continues to appear to be the entirely silent type...

Notice there's no statement from her on the Mayor's page?

No pledges means no broken promises, right?
