The town of Zionsville is working to upgrade its website with features that will provide improved search capabilities, more detailed information and simpler channels of communication between residents and town officials.
“Our primary goal for the new website is to provide a better experience for our residents,” Zionsville IT Director Joe Rust said.
One of the biggest features to launch on the new website will be an alert center, where visitors can sign up for to receive notifications on a variety of town topics.
“For example, if a resident would like to be notified whenever a new agenda is posted for a Zionsville Town Council meeting, they will be able to sign up for that and choose how they would like to be contacted,” Rust said.
With the upgrades, the website is slated to cost $7,333 per year over the span of three years. The project is funded through Zionsville’s technology budget.
Town staff members are still being trained to use the software that will run the new Zionsville website. If training and site development proceeds as scheduled, the new site is expected to be up and running in August.
