Belgrade, Maine Goes Online with HometownUSA.com
A joint effort between The Town of Belgrade and A2Z Computing Services has begun with the publication of the town's Official Website at www.BelgradeMaine.com. This website is being developed to promote the community of Belgrade by allowing businesses, non-profits, schools, churches and residents to be listed within its pages. The goal and purpose of the website is not only to promote the community as a whole but to aid in local area economic revitalization by informing residents and visitors of local area happenings, businesses, facilities and services.
"This website supports and enhances our efforts to achieve complete communication throughout the town of Belgrade", says Kathleen Smith, Belgrade Town Manager, "All committee chairpersons will be able to update their information. I will encourage these updates to be ongoing. This is a great step forward for our community."
