Great news! The City of Rensselaer has launched an official web site at http://www.rensselaerny.gov, already populated with some announcements and events. Thanks to everyone involved in finally making this happen!
This is a work in progress, but it's a good start. The top row of menus seems most complete, and contact information about the various City Departments seems pretty robust. (Highlights include a History of the city and the ever-popular: Recycling and Curbside Pickup Guidelines)
I hope that they will eventually include agendas and minutes of council meetings, planning boards, etc., as I know they have them in electronic format now.
