Understanding that openness and easy access to town government and officials is vital, Mark Assini and the Gates GOP Team plan to review alternatives to make Gates Government more accessible to the public.
They intend to make a comprehensive review of the ways Gates residents can and do interact with Town government and Town officials and to consider ways to enhance the levels of access and communication.
The GOP team will be reviewing ways to upgrade the Town of Gates’ website. Possible improvements include putting the Town Code and other rules and regulations online as well as developing interactivity for residents regarding applications for permits and licenses. Additional items under review include developing links from the Gates website to other sites of community interest.
This review will keep a close eye on cost of such improvements. The GOP team is, as always, committed to improving service in a cost-effective way. The goal of the review will be to enhance residents’ ability to interact with Gates government without excessive or unneeded expense.
