With the launch of the new City of Ellsworth website, residents can sign up to be notified when new meeting agendas and other notices are posted to the site as well as see important alerts displayed prominently on the home page.
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!
