By Tere Dunlaptdunlap@ themonroetimes.comMONROE - The Monroe Information Technology Committee is seeking the future of the city's website.Members will meet this Wednesday to consider CivicPlus, a website consultant firm that provides designing, staff training and support for government websites and electronic communications, dubbed eGovernment.The cost for all the "bells and whistles" is about $25,000 spread over the first three years during which the website would be developed and rolled out. After that, the cost drops to a yearly maintenance fee.City Administrator Phil Rath believes the website would save staff time and effort, enough to cover the expense, as well as serve citizens, particularly those geared toward future technology. "Given the extent of the next generation of computer users, it's what we're (all) doing in the future," he said.
