City of Washougal launches new website
Posted August 3rd, 2015
The City of Washougal is providing its residents and visitors a new website redesigned to provide easier access to government services and information and new ways to stay informed about topics of interest. Visit the website at www.cityofwashougal.us.
In partnership with Aha Consulting, a leading provider of open source city websites, the City of Washougal will be able to build upon its goal of providing more open communications with its citizens, increasing transparency, and enabling easy online access to city services. Highlights of the new site include:
- Responsive design, which means the site is resizable for any screen, including any mobile device.
- Social media integration.
- Citizens can search the website by keyword, subscribe to email notifications, track current city job openings, view the city calendar and upcoming events, and much more.
During the redesign effort, the City also endeavored to clean up its content from the old site. As a result, the city eliminated outdated and inaccurate or duplicate information and now hosts a trimmed up site. The site will continue to be a work in progress over the next few months as additional content is added and organized.
