Brown County has officially found its place in the technological universe with the creation of a Web site, www.

browncountytx.org. Emergency Manage-ment Coordinator Brent Bush made the announcement this week with a parenthetical editorial comment — “finally” — as part of his press release.

Actually, it’s a case of better late than never. Most governmental entities, civic groups and businesses have discovered the value of having a presense on the World Wide Web, and Brown County’s action to establish its site will also allow this branch of government to better serve its citizens. Names of county and judicial officials who have been either elected or appointed to serve the people are shown, along with contact information.

In coming weeks, the site will be adding additional information that will make handling the important business citizens must transact with county government easier.

The new site is a welcome development, and one that enhances county government here.
