MARDELA SPRINGS, Md. (AP) — One Maryland shore town is deciding whether to create a municipal website.

Commissioners of Mardela Springs tell the Daily Times of Salisbury that they’re considering a website to promote open government and to keep residents informed about events and meetings. The town currently spreads information by mailing out monthly newsletters.

Commission president Stanford Robinson says the town is concerned about possible startup costs. He says it won’t be able to start the site if it would cost the town $400 to $500 a year. He says the town might look for a local resident who could build a website for free or at a cheap price.
