April 6, 2011

Town of Catawba officials voted Monday to continue improving the town's online presence with an upgraded website.

The town will spend $1,200 on a program to add customization features to www.townofcatawbanc.org, a website that currently gives the town "a limited amount of flexibility," said Catawba Town Manager Brian Barnett.

During the council's April meeting, Barnett showed council members the town of Elizabethtown's website, which will resemble Catawba's new website, once it is completed.

"It'll be the same concept, but it will be geared toward Catawba," Barnett said.
