Municipal website receives overhaul

The municipality’s website will have a new look when an overhaul of the site is completed.

The municipality’s website will have a new look  when an overhaul of the site is completed.

Jeremy Denegar, director of corporate services of the municipality, said he hopes to see the new site go live before the end of the year.

“Wouldn’t that be a great gift to the community,” he said.

While the site will have a new look, the overhaul is much more than a cosmetic change, he said.

The reworked site will be easier to navigate and will have a stronger focus on good communication with the public, Denegar said.

In addition, out-of-date content and bad links will be removed before the site goes live.

“It’s very visually driven, very tech-friendly,” Denegar said.

The site will function on computers, smart phones and tablet devices.

Much of the work has already been completed, although the home page will be the last part to be built.

Denegar said the look of the home page will depend on the rest of the content of the site.

Home page content will be changeable and will be determined by statistics and activity on the site.

Pictures on the site include tourism images from around the community. Denegar said good tourism-related content is necessary as the municipality’s site is the top result when people search for information about Summerland.
