When the City of Ellsworth requested proposals for the development of a new site, the list of desired features was based on feedback from residents.
- Visitors to the site needed to be able to easily find information on city services without knowing what department provided the service.
- Residents wanted to be able to sign up to receive an email letting them know when certain notices were added to the site.
- The site needed to work well on mobile phones and tablets.
While the City’s website committee considered a proposal from a national company which specializes in developing sites for municipalities, they elected to award the project to a local company that could provide personal attention and is conveniently located just a five minute walk away – REACH!
