Two city employees armed with plenty of computer savvy are producing Roosevelt City's first entry on the Internet's World Wide Web.
Kirk Bostick, who works as an administrative assistant, and Mark Murphy, a Roosevelt City police officer, recently presented the City Council with versions of a home page which would introduce people all over the world to what Roosevelt has to offer."We've been brainstorming about jumping on the World Wide Web and getting our own home page on the Internet," Bostick said.
"We have the capability of doing this for Roosevelt City right now." The pair have already worked up a detailed fact sheet on the city's 18-hole golf course, which would be featured on Roosevelt's home page, complete with a picture.
They also plan to provide information on other positive aspects of Roosevelt such as the high quality of medical care available, opportunities for higher education through USU and the Uintah Basin Applied Technology Center, as well as focusing on the wide open spaces, clean air, and low crime rate which area residents enjoy.
The city' s home page would also carry public notices, minutes of City Council meetings, employment opportunities, community events, and parks and recreation information. The home page can be updated as often as needed.
It will cost the city about $150 to purchase the necessary software to access the Internet, and then approximately $15 a month for "rental space" on a server.
The City Council approved the purchase. Murphy said the city's home page is expected to hit the Internet as soon as Uintah Basin Telephone installs a new server.
