A personal view of Knowlton, Quebec, the Eastern Townships most beautiful village.

Richard Wisdom still in Power? "Yes" says Town Website!
Read the full story here.

According to the Offcial Website of The Town that is...even three weeks after the municipal elections the Brome Lake Website still shows the old councillors and mayor listed as being in power. Not only is the website out of date and being neglected but it makes us wonder if anyone in Brome Lake even gives a hoot!

Unbelievable! The Town of Brome Lake hired some bozos years ago to do an official website and it has turned into a real joke...while Bromont is calling itself "Une Ville Branché" Knowlton should be calling itself the "Ville debranché".

The Official Town website still lists all the old council members and the old mayor on the website! Yep...according to the Offical Town of Brome Lake website the Mayor is none other than Richard Wisdom! Does anyone at city hall know how to change the website or is the webdesigner some cyberbozo who overcharged for some complicated software that is undecipherable. Heck if Morris Croghan can start a blog then someone at City Hall should be able to figure out their own website!

This shows that the taxpayers got royally screwed by the website design team that somehow got the contract from the Town. They walked away with a cool 25 thousand dollars and left the taxpayers holding the bag! Arenèt there plenty of local webdesigners who could have done a better job...oy heay...the council never went to Tender on the website...just rubber stamped their buddy's application!

The website is downright nasty with overlapping text, poor design, blank pages! On top of that it was designed by some firm not even in Brome Lake! Why oh why does The Town hand out these juicy contracts to outsiders when Brome Lake has a multitude of talented and capable people who would be happy to keep an up to date website operating for the residents of Brome Lake. Heck even this website is more up to date!!

As it is the ramshackle TBL website is a poor reflection on the town as it seems to show only stagnation...in 2010 there is no excuse to have such a shoddy website! Especially since it cost over $25,000!!!

To see the website visit http://ville.lac-brome.qc.ca/home.php?WS=1 but be warned...it is hard to look at!

What a shame! I think they didn't put their best effort in building the site. Well this could be a good topic for my paper writing.

Maybe the town should offer a contract to the existing chamber of commerce to maintain their website in association with local web designers to upkeep this tool of local development the town's web site should be a central source of information that could to enter the 20teen in a modern meets old style way promoting why Ville Lac Brome and Knowlton are worth living in...

A job could be created, the town and the chamber of commerce are composed of many important players, someone should try to harness all that energy in the name of excellence!
