BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- At the November 19 Bloomfield Township Council meeting, Information Technology Director Jean-Guy Lauture unveiled a significantly upgraded township website that members of the public will find more accessible and aesthetically pleasing. The website domain remains unchanged at http://www.bloomfieldtwpnj.com. To ensure all residents can provide feedback on the website and appropriate structural changes can be made, the Mayor and Council will host a public forum on Wednesday, December 12 at 7:00pm at the Bloomfield High School Media Center.
In April, the Bloomfield Township Council held a public forum where residents spoke about their expectations from the Township regarding communications and keeping residents in the know about events happening in town. The forum focused on the way the Township uses platforms like its website, Facebook, and Swift911 to share information to create one easily accessible location for residents to get all the information they need from the Township.
“The Spring forum laid the framework for the substance of this new site, to more prominently emphasize public meeting minutes and agendas and events like recycling days,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “Once press releases are posted on our new website, they will also be displayed on the official ‘Township of Bloomfield’ Facebook page which residents have already utilized as a direct way of having questions about any number of issues or municipal departments answered in one place, without hassle.”
The new website was custom-built for Bloomfield by the IT Director and CivicPlus, a company that specializes in government websites. Through the new website, residents can sign up to receive alerts, including road closings, Council, Zoning, Planning and other public board or committee meetings, events calendars, and much more.
