Murray Unveils New, Interactive Hempstead Town Website; Includes Detailed Information on Departments, Events and More

Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray is proud to announce the launch of the town’s new website, an interactive one-stop information hub for everything residents need to know about the Town of Hempstead.

“The newly redesigned and re-engineered Town of Hempstead website features detailed information on all town departments, meeting dates, events and downloadable forms and applications,” said Murray. “I encourage all Town of Hempstead residents to visit our website,, and check out all that America’s largest township has to offer.”

With interactive, colorful and user-friendly pages, the town’s website reflects the atmosphere and beauty found throughout the suburban communities of Hempstead Town. Users will find the site to be easily navigable, as demonstrated in dozens of self-expanding information boxes, drop-down menus and pop-up tabs, many of them accompanied by great photos taken around the town.

The website will highlight events, programs and activities taking place around Hempstead Town. On the homepage, the sliding information boxes currently detail children’s holiday shows offered by the town and its Home for the Holidays Pet Adoption Program. These boxes also showcase the festively decorated Rock Hall Museum, open to the public for the holiday season. Be sure to visit the site regularly to stay informed on all that’s happening throughout the year in Hempstead Town.
