New site might offer online bill paying

WILLIAMSPORT - Williamsport residents might eventually be able to pay their utility bills online on a new town Web site expected to go live within a month, Williamsport Mayor James G. McCleaf II said Monday.

The town is paying Hagerstown designer Eric Kuczynski $1,500 to construct a new site to replace the limited home page the town has now, McCleaf said.

The new site also will feature links to local businesses and organizations, the town newsletter, a calendar, and copies of the town's charter, ordinances, and Town Council agendas and minutes, Kuczynski said.


Alley by park to be one-way

WILLIAMSPORT - Williamsport's Town Council voted Monday to make the alley between Sheetz and Byron Memorial park one-way.

Cars will be able to come out from the alley to East Potomac Street, but not to enter the alley from East Potomac, the council said.

The town will have signs made and will give residents a month's notice before the change becomes effective, Mayor James G. McCleaf II said.

Six are finalists for clerk/treasurer

WILLIAMSPORT - Williamsport officials plan to interview six finalists for the town's vacant clerk/treasurer position on Thursday, Mayor James G. McCleaf II said.

The town received more than 75 applications for the position, he said.

Funds left over from Toys for Kids

WILLIAMSPORT - Williamsport's Toys for Kids program finished the season with toys and funds left over for next year, Councilman Jeff Cline said Monday. The town raised about $5,000 in donations and collected about 3,000 toys, he said. Toys were distributed to about 230 children from more than 70 local families, he said.

The town's Santa in the Park program also was a success, bringing more than 1,000 visitors to Byron Memorial park over four nights, Cline said.

He thanked volunteers and donors for their contributions to both programs.
