FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On May 4th, Plainsboro Township launched a new and improved township website. The new website responds to several key goals established by the township. The new website will:
1. Enhance government transparency by providing more information that is more easily accessed;
2. Allow the public to conduct business with the township online. Users can make payments online, complete and submit forms and register for programs. Also, residents will be able to make service requests online;
3. Expand the township’s ability to communicate directly with citizens and businesses, especially during times of emergency, by using various methods of electronic notification as well as social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
“The new site will greatly enhance our ability to connect with our citizens and the business community,” stated Mayor Peter Cantu.
To become part of this new interactive community and take full advantage of the website, residents will be asked to register on the website. This will allow them to receive emergency information via text, email or phone. They can also choose from a menu of other information that they would like to receive such as tax payment reminders, public events or road closings.
“We recognize that our residents will increasingly use the website as a conduit for services,” stated Robert Sheehan, Plainsboro Township Administrator. “The new website expands those opportunities. Going forward, the website will be a platform that we build upon and integrate fully into the day-to-day operations of the township.”
