County leaders want revamped website

Chilton County Commissioners and Sheriff Kevin Davis say they would like to see more updated information on the county’s website, chiltoncounty.org.

Monday night, the commission tabled a decision to renew the contract for the website at a rate of nearly $150 per month. The site is currently being maintained by Racon Marketing Group.

Allen Caton made a motion to allow County Administrator Vanessa Hendrick to get prices from several vendors.

“It doesn’t ever change. It’s the same old thing,” said Commissioner Joe Headley, echoing Davis.

Davis said statistics for the sheriff’s department are out of date. He also indicated the department didn’t have the time or personnel to keep the information updated regularly.

Davis pointed to the Cherokee County website as an example of what he would like to see on the local website. He said the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department posts all its media information on the site and gets about 12,000 hits a day.

Caton said he would also like to see pictures of county commissioners on the site.

“People want to know what we look like,” he said.

In other business, the commission will hold a work session Tuesday night and a special meeting Thursday night to discuss and pass the annual budget. Both meetings will begin at 6 p.m. in the boardroom on the bottom floor of the courthouse.

Caton also announced he was appointed to the Finance and Taxation Steering Committee of the Association of County Commissions of Alabama.
