WOODINVILLE--Soon, you'll be able to access the city of Woodinville on the Internet thanks to a partnership between the city and the Northshore School District.
A site, prepared by Timbercrest Junior High ninth graders enrolled in Rosemarie Wilkins World Wide Web class, is expected to be on-line by July 31, according to Marie Stake, Woodinville communications coordinator.
The address will be www.woodinville-city.com.
The site will feature city news releases, information on city events, departments and the City Council, links to back issues of the City Chronicle, and Citizen Action Request forms. There will be e-mail addresses to contact members of the council and city staff, as well as pictures of the area taken by the students and Woodinville history.
Stake said the city provided the text, and the students, John Carruthers, John Ceis, Mike Pollard, Eric Pratti and Matt
Warhol, ran with their ideas.
The project began in January when the city asked the district for help. Stake termed it "a great example of partnerships with the community."
Wilkins and lab technician Jason Lovell were on hand when the students presented their work to the council in June.
"You can put this in your portfolio and be proud of it," said Scott Hageman, deputy mayor. He said it fit the city's vision of government being more accessible to its citizens.
The City of Bothell is also on-line at www.bothell.com.
