Wistowns is a project to build a network of simple web sites for townships and other small governmental organizations in Wisconsin. it is currently a second-round competitor in the Knight News Challenge. We are hoping that we will attract enough funding to move forward with the project and make these web sites available to townships in Wisconsin for free for the first year (with a very minimal charge for hosting and maintenance after that year).
The sites will be very simple to use, and will not require technical skills beyond the basic ability to use a web browser. The project is currently in prototyping with a few small townships in the state, and will be moving forward if/when we find a funding source.
