A contract for $7,500 per year with a service called Bang the Table for public engagement software will not be renewed.
Clerk Lindsey Green recommended against the cost for the site which did not receive wide use.
Part of the reason might have been the need to sign in and create an account, an extra step people don’t always want to take, staff said.
The township can still do online polls using other, cheaper services, Ms Green said in her report.
The site was eached by a button on the home page on the Southgate website. Among different features were quick polls and colourful visuals and explanations.
While a number of topics were opened for discussion over the year, only a view attracted a volume of interest - one a poll on a choice between holiday streetlight decorations in Dundalk, and the other on continuing Blue Box and other services.
Another topic asking for interest in an “adopt a fire hydrant” program, where residents sign up to clear out snow from around a hydrant, did not attract much uptake.
