The Town flag is flying at half-mast today following the sad news that Raymond A. Hynes, former Wolfville Councillor from November 4th, 1991 to November 14, 2000, passed away yesterday.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time and further information regarding funeral arrangements will be added once known.
Earlier this year we conducted a survey on public satisfaction with our website. We gathered the information provided and have now begun to make changes. You will now see a change to the structure of the site.
We will be reducing the main sections to three in total – Town Hall, Experiencing Wolfville and Learning in Wolfville.
Over the next 6 – 8 weeks we will be updating and revising the information within those three sections to make them as user friendly and succinct as possible. Our goal is to go live with the revised content beginning of October. At the same time, we are researching the steps to make the website accessible for everyone and will be developing an implementation plan as part of the Town’s Accessibility Work Plan.
Thank you for your patience as we make these changes, our goal is an improved and up to date website that can more easily be navigated by all.
