A new website is enabling the RM of St. Francois Xavier to keep local residents up-to-date on activities within the municipality.
"We have a completely new look and feel now," said SFX CAO Robert Poirier.
He said one of the biggest improvements is the ability for he and other municipal staff to update the site’s content. This could prove to be extremely valuable during local emergencies such as the flooding in 2011.
The former website’s content was updated externally.
"We can post real-time updates continually," Poirier said.
The site also contains an e-news sign-up section to facilitate the municipality’s ability to send email messages to residents.
As well as municipal business, the site is designed to showcase the municipality’s attractions, and Poirier urges local photographers to send in photos taken within the municipality for posting on the site.
