The new City website isn’t fine. Last week the OLD website was back: https://blnnews.com/2017/05/26/not-up-in-smoke-its-the-cloud/
This morning this is what I got at cityblm.org
The old website was reliable. Until someone decided to hide information (like tax receipts), it was easy to find what was being searched. I wonder why a new website was needed, other than they wanted new and prettier.
Besides some links that didn’t work, the new site was running pretty well – even with the annoying pop-ups caused by moving the mouse. It hasn’t been running so well that last 2 weeks. Will the City get a refund? Or, is it somebody at the City’s fault. The site was not done locally.
On another note:
Ever since the US Cellular contract expired, we have been told a new naming rights sponsor for the Coliseum will be announced soon. That was more than a year ago. US Cellular had been paying $200,000 a year.
Reminds me of what is said about the roads being fixed, but I digress.
The US Cellular signs are finally coming down. I wonder if the shadow from where they were can still be read. If somebody drives by, let me know. David Hales is still saying a new sponsor will be announced soon.
A new sponsor will be found about the time the roads are fixed. Start riding a bike – your roads will never be fixed.
How soon before a biker, attempting to dodge a pothole, veers into traffic and gets turned into a pancake?
