City council plans for website changes

At Tuesday's regular meeting, the Mount Pleasant City Council discussed a plan for a professional services agreement with Brooke/ Bayley, a DFW-based creative communications agency.

"Once you have [a website] and you start using it for legal documents andsoforth, we have no choice but to keep moving forward with a website. You can't decide not to do it for a while until you get ready to go implement it again," said city manager Ed Thatcher. "So, doing it and doing it right is really important to us."

For $4,000 a month, the agency could revamp the website and keep it updated with fresh content.

According to Thatcher, who has worked with Brooke/Bailey in the past, the agency is more than a web manager.

"It's almost like they were full time guys," Thatcher said of his previous experience working with the company. "They went to all the weekly events and nightly events."

It was approved, 4-1; Councilmembers Tim Dale, Jerry Dale Walker, Galen Adams and Henry N. Chappell II voted in favor; Councilmember Sherri Spruill voted against it.
