After years of an English only website, the town of Georgetown is launching a completely bilingual online presence to ring in the New Year.
“It’s probably something we should have thought of doing sooner,’’ said Georgetown Mayor Lewis Lavandier. “But the council is glad we are getting on track now.” Georgetown has no shortage of French heritage and surnames, but few in the town use it as their first language.
“We have two official languages in Canada and we are doing what we can to ensure our website offers a comfortable experience for both English and French speaking visitors,’’ said the mayor.
