City seeks public input on its website, technology

 

The city of Mountain View is holding an informal forum on Monday, April 4, for the public to weigh in on how the city can best use online technologies to interact with the public.

The meeting will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Mountain View City Council Chambers located at 500 Castro St.

Community members unable to attend the meeting but eager to offer suggestions may e-mail their thoughts to egov@mountainview.gov. E-mailed comments will be sought by the city through April 5.

The city's goal is to assess its current website capabilities and to document what community still need from online operations, according to a press release from Kimberley Thomas, assistant city manager.

The city has sought the help of Pacific Technologies Inc., a consulting firm that specializes in local government technology planning, to help manage its online infrastructure.

Can we suggest that the council stop spending all of our money and focus on fixing the problems, not winning the next election.

New signs, new bullet proof glass for the PD, new fire trucks, but we keep cutting, and cutting, and cutting.

Did anyone see the last salary report? I should've been a firefighter...

Council has lost their vision - they think the City and it's employees work for them - they forget - they work or are supposed to work for the City and it's residents!

When will the City Council post a report showing city residents just what they have done to reduce costs and prepare for the budget deficit in the future. We are always hearing about what they are spending$$$ but what are they saving$$$???
