Oconomowoc's new website goes live today
The City of Oconomowoc will unveil its new website, www.oconomowoc-wi.gov at 5 p.m.
The new site has been in the works for several months and allows the city to provide a functional informational tool for residents and visitors as well as provide an improved image and representation for the city, Economic Development Director Bob Duffy said.
“The old site was focused on information, whereas the new site will include service as well,” Duffy said.
The new site includes:
• A new central menu, which will help users navigate the site
• A new global navigation
• A request section where residents can report concerns such as potholes or street lights that are out and get responses from staff in addressing those comments
• Videos and available commercial properties
• Citizen updates using Facebook & RSS feeds
Residents can look for the “Report A Concern” link to fill out a request to city staff or the “Notify Me” link on the homepage to receive alerts from the city, such as special events, public meeting information, and emergency alerts.
“The website is our central hub of communications. It allows people to do business online and find the information they need at their convenience. It’s an excellent way to build good relationships with citizens and to make visitors feel welcome,” said Oconomowoc City Administrator Diane Gard.
CivicPlus, a company which specializes in building city and county e-government communication systems, maintains the city’s website.
