City To Launch New Website Design Today

The website - - will take effect on Wednesday and features a complete overhaul, Madigan said, adding that the project was funded through the 2014 excess fund balance.

The main page features an eggplant border framing a color image of the Saratoga Springs War Memorial in Congress Park, and includes links to everything from City Council webcasts and instructions of how to file a FOIL request, to images of city landmarks such as the Canfield Casino, the Carousel, the Saratoga Music Hall, and horses at the Starting Gate, presumably at Saratoga Race Course.
