The overall Web Site Administrator is responsible for the general content and maintenance but not for the content of individual areas on the Village of Ellenville web site. The village board has designated the Village Clerk to provide content and maintenance of such areas as the Calendar page.

Communications received on issues regarding Web Site content or complaints should initially be provided to the Village Clerk in writing. The Village Clerk shall forward all such issues or complaints to each member of the Village Board, or to such member designated by the Village Board for that purpose within a reasonable time from receipt for review and resolution. All issues regarding Web Site content shall be resolved either informally, by a simple majority agreement, or the board members may choose to table such matters for a formal vote at the next town meeting. The final decision regarding content on the web site remains with the Village Board.
