PARIS — Town Manager Amy Bernard told selectmen Monday the town needs a new website that is easier to update.

The current website requires users to edit HTML code to make changes, Bernard said. She said Town Clerk Elizabeth Knox is the only town employee who knows how to edit the site.

“It is all in computer code, and no one in our office is trained in computer code.”

Bernard said the current site is “difficult to update.” She said a simpler interface would allow each department to update its own page.

The process of updating the town’s Web pages began recently. The Police Department, for example, had listed former Chief David Verrier as still being in charge and listed multiple police officers who had long since left the department for other jobs.

As a result of the update work, the website has often been down. Bernard said the town will see if the town’s current vendor can provide an easy-to-use interface or if the town will need to look at other vendors.

Selectmen authorized Bernard to research other website options.

At Monday’s meeting, selectmen also authorized the town to participate in Household Hazardous Waste Day at the Norway-Paris Transfer Station on Aug. 10.

The board also voted to allow Oxford Federal Credit Union to hold a dance in Moore Park after the Moore Park Art Show on July 27.
