Fifteen Northampton County Municipalities Have No Web Pages
There's really no excuse for this.
If a total nitwit like me can blog, all of the local municipalities around here should have their own web pages. That would demonstrate at least some minimal effort to keep us involved. A good Internet site provides both accountability and access. It makes government more transparent, and available 24 hours every day.
Incredibly, fifteen Northampton County municipalities have no web pages at all!
These are Bangor Borough, Chapman Borough, East Allen Township, East Bangor Borough, Glendon Borough, Lehigh Township, Moore Township, North Catasauqua Borough, Northampton Borough, Portland Borough, Roseto Borough, Stockertown Borough, Tatamy Borough, Upper Nazareth Township, and Walnutport Borough.
If these municipalities are unable to provide this basic service to its citizens, why are they here at all?
