- Over the past few days, I have received several reports that people are unable to access the page. I noticed this problem myself on Tuesday, but not since then. But several of my friends have had access issues all week. Are they right? According to Is it Down?, there is insufficient date to answer that question.
- The Sheriff Sale list was completely mangled online. Executive John Brown decided early on in his administration that he would stop printing Sheriff Sale lists because they are published online.. A Sheriff's Sale is scheduled for today, but the website has completely mangled the list. It has been listing properties that have already been sold, and has loaded old sale lists.The, ten minutes later, the correct list appears. I have noticed this problem myself, and it has been reported to me by several potential bidders who rely on the website to tell them if a property is going to sale or has been postponed.
- At the old page, a link to the elections office was listed under "county government."Also, there was a direct link to election results on the homepage for at least one or two months following an election. That direct link is now gone. So is a link to the elections office under county government. To find the elections office, you have to click on "County Administration," and then you have to click on a link called "Conduct of Elections." This office,which really is not part of the County Administration,should be listed separately under "county government."

NorCo's New Webpage Mangles Sheriff Sale List
Earlier his week, I told you about problems at Northampton County's new website. Ostensibly designed to bring government closer to the people it serves, it's had an opposite effect. Though some of the obvious problems have been corrected, it is still functioning poorly.
