If you haven’t seen the City of Blue Ridge website lately, you should take a look: City of Blue Ridge Website They have updated the site; you now have the convenience of being able to pay your utility bills/taxes/traffic citations online.
If elected, I would like to continue updating the city’s site, adding even more enhancements so that it becomes an ever more valuable tool for our residents and business owners.
My first priority would be to make sure all the information on the site — including city ordinances and budgets — is correct and up-to-date, providing more information and transparency. Once that is completed, I would like to make enhancements that would turn the site into a virtual town square. We could expand the site to include an open city hall where residents could submit questions and concerns to the mayor and city council, raise awareness of community issues, give feedback and exchange ideas. The City’s website can be one of the most essential tools for meeting the needs of our citizens, and so optimizing it around the citizen experience is crucial.
These are just a few ideas I have for the site. I would certainly welcome your input and suggestions. Feel free to call me at 706-455-9968.
I would like to ask for your vote so that, together, we can make our city’s website and our city a more inter-connected and vibrant place to live and conduct business.
