This is an email thread I had with Mountain Home, Idaho, City Councilman Jimmy Schipani about outdated data on the city website.

I would think that within three months of Paula Riggs retiring, she wouldn't still be listed as "staff" in the econ development portion of your website. I would also hope the city wouldn't allow a "Video tour coming soon" promise to remain on your website for 18 months with no link to that video (if there is an actual video).
I'm sure that type of information isn't important to many people but it appears as if the city cannot handle easy and routine communication and information dissemination. I'm sure there is a valid reason this outdated information remains on the city website but as a resident, it's hard to imagine what that could be.
Thanks for listening but I'm extremely busy and have to get going.

It's great to hear from you and I hope everything is going well! Thank you for the questions about our website. The company we currently use have not been very helpful to change items on our website. This has prompted us to switch companies. We are looking to have the new website up and running on April 23. I'm not a fan of having outdated information on our website. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me.
Hope you have a great weekend!
