It appears that Kidsgrove Town Council is proposing to spend Kidsgrove residents funds on developing a new website for the council. It is understood that at the moment Kidsgrove Town Council has “issues” with the current website, which was developed at a substantial cost to Kidsgrove residents.
Some Kidsgrove Town Councillors have had a bad track record when it comes to their online internet use. We broke the story about how Kidsgrove Councillors had websites, blogs and social media accounts all proclaiming to be from Kidsgrove Town Council when this simply was not the case. Former Kidsgrove Councillor Mathew Banner was asked and was working on a new website proposal for Kidsgrove Town Council, however from reading Kidsgrove Town Council minutes it appears this has gone by the wayside.
The Kidsgrove Council website committee appears to be looking at new website providers for Kidsgrove. How much Kidsgrove Town Council is proposing to spend has not been disclosed yet, however if the council is spending in addition of £600 then questions should be asked. The cost of website development has fallen dramatically in recent years and given the online skills of some of our Kidsgrove councillors, surly they could build a website at no cost to Kidsgrove?
