EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The East Brunswick Township website is redesigned with customers – residents, businesses, municipal staff, and other community members – in mind, and East Brunswick’s Municipal Access Channel, EBTV, is also sharing in the new website splendor. The new township and EBTV websites offer an improved user experience with an updated and modern appearance that are fully mobile-friendly.
Mayor Cohen expressed his excitement to share the new websites with the community. “It’s a new year and the township and EBTV have a new website that takes East Brunswick illustrates we’re evolving and innovating in the center of New Jersey. This is just one example of how we’re doing more and doing it better than before.”
The Township website includes new features and integrates consistent branding and imaging. Among the improvements are simple navigation to online payments, such as for parking permits or bills, and intuitive organization. The Department of Recreation and Parks accepts online program registration. Meeting agendas and minutes are searchable by date or entity (Township Council, Redevelopment Agency, Planning Board, or Zoning Board). All of these updates make for a more innovative and useful website.
The EBTV website features a reformatted homepage with a livestream player. Viewers can watch Town Council meetings live when they are in session or any programming shown on the station’s cable channels, Comcast Channel 26 and Verizon Channels 37 & 38. The homepage also has quick access to programs of interest like “This Week in East Brunswick,” “Business Spotlight,” and East Brunswick High School sports. Other improvements to the EBTV site include a faster-loading Video on Demand player and sharable program links. Non-profit organizations can also submit announcements to run on the channel by filling out the Community Bulletin Board form.
Additionally, residents are encouraged to take a look at the EBTV Archive, a project that was assisted by a grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State. The EBTV Archive includes programming going back to the late 1970’s, when the station was first established, like high school graduations, State of the Township Addresses, and news and events from the township’s past.
EBTV Manager Dave Ambrosy expressed the station’s enthusiasm for a stronger platform that improves EBTV program accessibility. “We’re grateful for the support of the New Jersey Historical Commission to make the project possible for the thousands of viewers who cherish the milestones and memories documented by EBTV in East Brunswick.”
