THE CITY OF JONESBORO
ANNOUNCES UNVEILING OF NEW ENHANCED
JONESBORO, GA – The City of Jonesboro, in an effort to increase transparency in government and to expand its effort to connect with residents, announces the release of its new revamped website. The new website is expected to be unveiled at the Christmas Tree Lighting Event on November 21, 2014.
The City of Jonesboro's official website will boast a fresh, new look and feel, improved navigation, and a functional mobile design, all of which are a part of the City's ongoing efforts to enhance the quality and availability of information and resources. Today’s citizen browsing seeks an opportunity for quick access to information and the ability to find information on their own, 24-hours a day/365 days a year.
With the mission to better serve our citizens, the new City website will deliver online government services conveniently and efficiently, streamline business, and serve as the first and trusted source of information about the City. With a content management system, staff throughout the City will be able to update the webpage themselves, saving staff time and creating efficiencies. The city’s site also features more photos and videos throughout its pages. Navigational options featured on the new home page were selected based on hit and search data as well as topic timeliness.
It’s a new era in website design,” said City Clerk Ricky Clark. “I knew going into this effort that not only did our website need to have an updated look and allow for the use of interactive forms, it also needed to accommodate mobile web users. More and more people are accessing Internet content from mobile devices, leaving designs based on desktop screen widths a thing of the past. ”
Mayor Day commented, “This is just one of many efforts we are embarking upon as a City to broaden transparency. We hope that residents enjoy the ease of simple navigation.”
