I innocently clicked over to the official town of Grafton website, as I’m wont to do several times on Mondays and immediately was taken aback.
This morning, the website was the ugly but serviceable site that we all know and tolerate. This afternoon, it’s… beautiful!
There are rotating photos of Grafton scenes! A background in a shade of green that does not assault the eyeballs! A tab for business that instantly links to the appropriate town bylaws and departments!
And — I think this is new — there’s a subscription feature that allows you to get emailed updates of news and events from around town. You can opt-in for emails about recreation offerings, emergency news, missives from the Council on Aging, the Department of Public Works and the Board of Health (you can also opt-out, which is always a useful feature).
I just signed up for all of them and I’m in the process of confirming that I my email wasn’t maliciously added.
Also, I hopefully clicked over to the school department site and, sadly, found the same old site.
