City of Ostrander has new website

Posted in Progress Edition

Rhonda Klapperich became the City Clerk/Treasurer for Ostrander in 2009. It wasn't long after she began that she suggested the city get its own website.

"I thought it would be nice to get some information out there," said Klepperich.

In April of 2010, the city began to move along with the project. The council agreed to the idea, and Klapperich talked to employees at SMG Web Design to make plans.

Klapperich spent some time gathering information for the website, including businesses in town, contact information, city information, and events going on in town.

Ostrander is a small town with a population of just over 200 people. But they are still going strong, and there are several businesses in town that bring people to the area, such as Susie's Roadhouse, The Wolf's Den, Ostrander Care and Rehab, Security State Bank, the Farmer's Coop, the Village Swan, and more. There is a daycare that is featured on the site, Missy's Munchkins, and there are pictures to go along with it. All of these are together on the website to show a small but special community.

Klapperich feels the website is very handy for being able to post alerts to residents, such as a water main break, or other information they feel is important people receive. And although SMG Web Design takes care of updating the site, it has been set up so that Klapperich can access it for emergencies.

"I keep coming up with other little things that would be nice to have on there," said Klapperich.

Ostrander has not grown much in the last year, but they have accomplished a lot for their residents. Klapperich said they received a grant last year that allowed them to purchase new bases for the ball field, a volleyball net, net for the tennis court, basketball nets, and two baskets for Frisbee golf. They try to maintain what they have and improve what they can to bring people to town.

"We try to do what we can with what we have," said Klapperich.
