“The new website has been completely redesigned and is arranged to be more intuitive to users who get their county information via the website,” Mr. Hughes said. The website is also designed to display on mobile phones and tablets, so users can get information on the go.
Through a competitive bid, the county hired Vision Internet to develop the site, and personnel from each county department and division contributed to their respective pages. The last time the county’s website was upgraded was in 2006.
In conjunction with the new website, the county reminds residents to utilize the emergency email alert system. To sign up for this free service, click on the ALERT MERCER tab on the homepage of the www.mercercounty.org website to be directed to the “Swift 911” Emergency Notification System registration form. If you were already receiving emergency-alert emails or texts from Mercer County, there is no need to re-register.
Website visitors still have option to sign up for their favorite updates, e-newsletters, recycling schedules and more. Questions or comments about the new county website can be emailed to the Public Information Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
