A look at the city's new website

Posted By on Tue, Nov 5, 2013 at 4:02 PM

The City of Spokane is getting a new website. To the aspiring web designer inside you, the site may not be perfect, but it's a hell of an upgrade for those of us who (have to) frequent the site. Most sections of the new site are still under construction, but take a look at the beta version here. More about how rare decent municipal government websites are, here.

The work is being done in-house by the city's web team (so it comes at no extra cost) and will offer the same basic city information as the old one. It will also encompass some sites that were previously separate, like the fire department's site, and will include blogs updating city projects. City Spokesman Brian Coddington says the redesign is aimed at making things people do often on the website — like paying their utility bills — easier. The site should be done by Jan. 1.
