Edgerton website dark since city administrator’s exit

Mark Taylor

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.


  1. Get your checkbook ready, Edgerton citizens. The salary that Press demands and that redesign of the internet site will be costing you but that will be peanuts compared to what will be coming down the pike……..we will all be paying dearly and in many, many ways…………Thanks, Lehman, Mertz, Drovetta, Fairburn, Jo. Co. Commissioners, Ex-Sen. Brownlee, Skippy Kalb, Bill Crandall and many, many more …………fun days ahead as we will be the gateway to the freight corridor – the maintenance of the roads alone will be a killer in costs……………the big boys called Press out of retirement and he answered the call to help bring this project to fruition and nobody knows politics and how to make the wheels move better than Mike Press………..some day you will realize people like Mike Press has done you no favors whatsoever……………
