Scope of Services

The Town of St. George maintains a town government website to provide residents, visitors, Town Staff/Boards/Committees and businesses with access to information about town services, contacts, announcements, news, events, public meetings, documents/forms and online services. This information is intended to offer convenient, cost effective and easy access for those wishing to learn about the Town of St. George and its governance. 

It is our practice not to link to sites that contain advertising, to use this site for solicitations of money or to advertise for local businesses.

The website is designed to grow and change to meet the needs of the public, boards and committees.  The Town Office is always interested in receiving ideas for new services and website content that is of interest.  Please email the Website Administrator with your suggestions.
