WESTBOROUGH – Residents have a new way to stay informed about town government.

During the Select Board meeting on April 11, Town Manager Kristi Williams introduced the new quarterly newsletter.

She also introduced Owen Page, the management analyst/communications assistant who did most of the work, including research and layout.

The first issue features an introduction; a listing of town events; and a glimpse of what’s happening within the various town departments.

The online newsletter includes links to other sites so that users may access more in-depth information.

Page said he wanted to make the newsletter “concise and accessible.”

Both Williams and Page said the feedback has been “great.”

Board members gave their thumbs up as well.

“It’s visually attractive and has a lot of information,” said board member Allen Edinberg.

“It looks fantastic,” said board member Shelby Marshall. “The folks love it.”

“We feel good about this new method of communication,” said Williams. “This is something I’ve wanted to do since I became town manager.”

“It was an excellent experience,” said Page. “I’m very proud of the accomplishments we’ve achieved.”

Since the newsletter’s introduction, 72 residents have signed up, and there are currently 1,030 subscribers.

Page said future issues could include “special editions” for major town events such as Town Meeting.

Those interested in receiving the newsletter may subscribe via the e-alerts via the front page of www.town.westborough.ma.us; click onto the box next to the town manager’s newsletter.

Physical copies are available on request; contact the town manager’s office.
