Edgerton’s city Web site hasn’t been updated since mid-January.

That’s because the only person authorized to administer the site – former city administrator David Dillner – no longer works for the city.

Dillner recently resigned the city’s top post to take a job in Abilene, Kan.

No one has since been able to make changes to the Web site.

Mike Press, interim city administrator, told council members March 24 the glitch was an “oversight”, and he is working to reauthorize control of the site.

“He (Dillner) put controls on the Web site to prevent unauthorized access,” Press said. “He just forgot to release that when he left. He had a million things going on.”

Press said he has contacted a technician that is expected to help regain authorization.

Updates and changes to the site – including city council agendas and minutes — will then be applied retroactively.

Press said Dillner is cooperating with the effort.

Press is also planning a redesign of the site.
