Dresden building town website

R ight now, if you type Dresden, N.Y. on your computer, up will pop “”Welcome to Dresden on Seneca.”
But by this summer, Washington County’s Dresden will have its own website, Supervisor George Gang said.
And don’t forget, “our” Dresden fronts two lakes, Lake George and Lake Champlain.
Work on the new website has been going on over the winter months, and in, of all places, Maryland, Gang said.
The site is being built by George Kapusinski, who lives in Dresden during the warm months of the year, but winters in Maryland. Gang said Kapusinski had considerable experience.
“George actually teaches web design,” Gang said.
The supervisor said right now Dresden residents can learn about Dresden on the web only by visiting the Washington County website, or other sites devoted to town activities. He added that those other sites, however, were more “touristy.”
For example, a site called “Adirondack Town of Dresden” praises its two fire departments, but it does not give the numbers to either company, according to the site listing.
Once the Dresden town website is up, Gang said it would contain all the pertinent information that other town websites display, such as members of the town board, contacts for public works, fire companies, etc.
“We have a proposed front page,” Gang said. When the town board meets, it reviews the proposals and sends back comments or suggestions to the web site builder in Maryland.
For example, photos of both Lake Champlain and Lake George are under consideration, but so are ideas for historical photographs of Dresden.
“I definitely hope George (Kapusinski) will load historic photos,” Gang said.
But the main purpose of the site will be to connect Internet savvy Dresden residents with all of Dresden’s officials and services, as well as providing links to Washington County personnel, agencies and services, Gang said.
“It will definitely be up by summer,” Gang said.
