PARIS, TX -- Paris' Mayor is hoping a new website will help attract investors and developers to the city.
Mayor A.J. Hashmi announced during Monday's city council meeting that he is working on a site to help market Paris. Currently the mayor has a preliminary site up and running at ePortalParis.com, where he plans on listing current and future projects for the city.
Hashmi says a blog on the site will allow for closer connection with city government.
"Residents of the community or visitors can quickly go on the blog and ask a question and we will monitor the blog site and the city manager and the mayor will answer those questions," said Hashmi.
Hashmi says if the council approves the site, he will put a link on the city and PEDC websites as well as advertise in major publications.
The site is expected to be fully operational in a few weeks..
