WYOMING -- This city is looking for a volunteer Webmaster.

A city council committee, formed to review the creation and maintenance of a city Web site, suggested starting this project using volunteer help.

Anyone interested in helping Wyoming create the Web site should call 821-7600.
In a report sent to council, the committee recommends using a volunteer to save on programming costs during the first phase of this initiative.

That person will be awarded a $60 gift certificate for dinner at one of the city's well-known restaurants, City Manager Robert Harrison said.

Using a professional design firm would cost about $3,500, according to the committee, which estimates that fixed costs for an Internet service provider would range from $30-$50 per month.

"It is assumed that due to the rapid pace of change in Web site technology and the desire to expand the services provided by Web site that a major upgrade would occur in the first two years of operation," the report stated.

Contained on the site would be news, city information, and hyperlinks to the council actions, city history, services, boards and commissions, calendar events, the city newsletter, recreation information, and various statistics about Wyoming.

Provisions for e-mail for city departments will also be part of the initiative with e-mail for council members and other staff to be added during future site enhancements, officials said.

The volunteer Webmaster would only be responsible for startup of this site; maintenance would be handled by city staff, Mr. Harrison said.

Officials hope to use the site, eventually, for online registration for programs, electronic filing of tax returns and other electronic transactions.
