Highlights of the redesigned site include a map of Washington Township noting specific businesses, parks, and municipal buildings, as well as archived and recent Eagle and Gold Award projects from the Boys and Girls Scout troops in town.

Gaskill’s contract took effect Aug. 1, and includes the oversight of Califon Borough’s website.
