During this week’s Selectmen’s meeting, a resident said she wished there was a way to be better informed of what is going on in town.
She said that because of her busy nighttime schedule she can’t attend meetings and it would be nice to know what’s on the meeting agendas and maybe have access to the meeting minutes.
She and some other residents obviously haven’t been following Orange Live regularly and depend on print newspapers for their news.
For years we’ve provided agendas and meeting notes with our “Notes in a Nutshell” feature.
One thing, in particular, is a post we published on October 26, 2017, entitled “Introducing The New Town Of Orange Website — It’s Fabulous!”
Had everyone read that, they would have known that the town website offers meeting agendas, meeting minutes, and an option to get push notifications when new items that would be of interest are added to the site.
About Orange Live
Orange Live has been a valued community resource for hundreds of Orange residents since May 2012 and we offer the most up to the minute Orange news of ANY “local” news source. It is not your basic cookie cutter website. Orange Live was custom built for ease of use. We update the website, twitter, and Facebook pages several times every day, including weekends.
We have direct links to the Orange Government Access Television site and “On Demand” OGAT video site, which its administrator, Ron Davis said is the main source for traffic to these sites.
Below these, we’ve added a box that will lead you to the town website so you can connect to the Meeting Agendas and Minutes easily.
Orange Live is, and always has been, dedicated to the town of Orange, you won’t find stories from Milford on our pages, but we do share information from Amity High School in Woodbridge because Orange students go there, play sports there and perform in its theater program. We also occasionally include items from the Beardsley Zoo, which is Connecticut’s Zoo, and only a short car ride away, in Bridgeport.
Orange Live has ONE employee who is responsible for every aspect of the site: Writing, photographs, research, answering phone calls and e-mails, building ads, posting to the website, twitter, Facebook and everything else.
When It comes to advertising, Orange Live works with and for its advertisers. Our hands-on approach is like no other company. For Orange Live, it’s not about the money, it’s about the customer. Businesses that have last minute events happening can have their ad changed to reflect it with just a phone call, text, or e-mail.
Orange Live receives more views in a week than the local newspapers get in their monthly print issues.
We never pay other professionals to provide us with clicks, so we can offer our advertisers honesty and true numbers.
