Trustees Corner

Here we are winding down summer and I feel like it just began. It is hard to believe the kids will be back in school in three weeks. Summer vacation did not hit town hall as we have had quite a bit keeping us busy.

The most exciting news is the update to the township website. The trustees entered into a contract with Proximity Marketing to bring our vision to life. I have been working closely with them to develop a website that is both functional and easy to navigate. The board has been discussing what changes we would like to see in the formatting, as well as what new information to add to the updated website. The updates will include forms that residents can now download and print instead of coming to town hall to pick them up. There will also be quick links on the home page and an easy-to-find tab to sign up for the township newsletter.

With the relaunch of the updated website, Hinckley will also launch our first YouTube channel, where you can access all of the town meetings. Many residents do not have the availability to attend meetings during the week and this will ensure everyone has the ability to be informed of township discussions immediately following a meeting instead of having to wait two weeks for meeting minutes to be approved and posted. This level of transparency is meant to inform and reach more residents than ever before. The goal is to launch the updated site in September. 

Discussions also began about hosting movie nights in Brongers Park. This will be a free community event that will allow everyone to meet new neighbors and reconnect with friends, while the kids snack on popcorn and watch their favorite movies. Stay tuned, more to come. ∞
