Tyrone jumps on the website bandwagon | Local News

Tyrone Township Supervisory Board on Wednesday approved a 10-year contract for a township-owned website domain.

Previously funded by Adams County, municipalities are now required to have their own Internet domains, Chairman Russell Raub said.

Go Daddy is an internet domain that has the internet technology resources to protect data and other municipalities have been satisfied using Go Daddy, Raub said.

“Once we get this new domain, we’ll be taken to the exact same homepage,” he said.

Costs depend on the Internet domain registrar and extensions, because “.com” is a commercial domain it’s often the most expensive, Raub said.

The total domain cost was $212.90 for 10 years, plus $9.99 per year for full coverage, plus taxes, for a grand total of $314.60.

The appearance of the township website will not change and township emails will not be affected.

In other cases, the canton’s independent audit report was found to be in compliance for the year 2021.

An ongoing recommendation from listeners is that the person who writes the checks, the township treasurer, should not be the one who signs the checks, Raub said.

Supervisors took the recommendation into consideration, but the township has a system of “checks and balances” in place that requires at least two supervisors to also sign a check, regardless of the amount, he said.

The township’s planning commission will meet on April 14 at 7 p.m., and the supervisory board will meet on April 20 at 6 p.m.
