The site, unveiled to the public Jan. 7, is expected to become the "hub" of Campbell's new integrated e-government efforts and will link information on the website to t he city's Facebook page as well as its Twitter account.
Navigation has been simplified by utilizing a drop-down “mega-menu” that will allow visitors to quickly locate the information and services they need, the city said in a press release.
A new section, “I Want to …?” offers simple and straightforward instructions on how to obtain a variety of city services.
Another new feature, “Notify Me” will allow individuals to sign up to receive alerts about public meetings, special events, job opportunities and numerous other city activities.
Search has also been enhanced using “key word” functionality and will display results by category, pages, documents and forms.
"Our beautiful downtown is highlighted on the website’s main page, with a stunning photograph of the city’s iconic water tower and view of East Campbell Avenue being the background," the release said.
“Making these enhancements reflects Campbell’s long-standing commitment to provide outstanding public services, information availability, and responsiveness," said Campbell City Manager Mark Linder.
The website redesign culminates six months of effort by city staff and members of the City Council, the release added.
