On Wednesday the Town of Greenwich launched a new website, GreenwichCT.gov, that will revitalize how residents interact with the town and its departments.
According to a statement released by First Selectman Peter Tesei, the modern, branded and unified website will improve the relevancy, accuracy, timeliness and overall quality of website content.
All of the contents of the new website, which will be overseen by Digital Content Editor Cameron Martin, will be in compliance with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The new website was developed by CivicPlus (based in Manhattan, Kansas), a company that has successfully launched more than 2,700 websites for municipalities in the United States and Canada.
More than 40 content stewards from across Town Hall departments have been trained on the new content management system and will create and share engaging, informative content with the public. Martin will curate the content and elevate the most wide-ranging news to the homepage.
“I am both pleased and excited that this new website will provide ease and accessibility to local government and information not only to our residents but for also for our employees,” said First Selectman Peter Tesei in the statement. “Both residents and visitors will be able to obtain information much more easily. And it will be much easier for the employees, who will be acting as content stewards, to upload the latest information on a real time basis.”
He added, “Visitors to the new website will discover how much easier it will be to access information, forms and requests.”
