Stay up-to-date and current with the lastest technologies and trends

We can ensure that it stays current forever only if you upgrade to TownCMS v5, which is is the last website upgrade you'll ever need!

Since we originally launched your municipal website many years ago, we have invested heavily in developing a new platform that gets better each year, which benefits you.

Indirectly we have also become one of the largest municipal web design and hosting companies in America. This means you also get access to all the world class services and features listed below on this page. 

If I had to sum up three of the most important features for you in upgrading to TownCMS v5, it would be the following :

  • A mobile-friendly website (so any device can visit it)
  • ADA 508 compliant (so that anybody with a disability can access your content)
  • Automatically receive updates/upgrades/bug fixes for no additional fee. (thus keeping your total cost of ownership extremely low.)
