In the early 1990s, Al Gore created the Internet. Three weeks ago, the town of Bridgewater finally created its own website.
Bridgewater joined the digital age at the end of April, thanks to a $2,400 state grant and some extra work from Town Clerk Nancy Robinson, who set up and loaded information to the site: bridgewater.vt.gov.
Residents have asked Robinson for a source of online town information over the years.
“After Irene, I think the town sort realized we needed better means of communication,” Robinson said.
The site includes the 2012 Town Report, a community calendar and Selectboard minutes. There are also policies and ordinances and town contact information.
