COOPERSTOWN – On Otsego County government’s newly redesigned website,, you can read about board chair David Bliss or county Sheriff Richard J. Devlin, Jr., in Japanese.

Or in any of 90 other languages.

Also, adapting to new ADA requirements means the redesigned site will adjust to whatever the size of your screen might be, from hand-held to huge.

For now, this is what Otsego County IT Director Brian Pokorny most wants you to know:  Don’t Google if you’re looking for a county office or service.  Just go to and type it into the search line.
