Sussex County has unveiled a newly designed website that features a more polished, cleaner appearance, a consistent, branded design, improved functionality across computer and mobile devices, and a streamlined grouping of information to help users find the services and resources they need, according to government officials.
The nearly year-long project is the first major revamp of the county’s online presence in more than five years. Officials said the county website has grown by more than 63 percent in the past seven years, from an average of 78,000 visits per month in 2006 to more than 127,000 site visits per month, on average, in 2013.
Since the website was launched in the mid-1990s, the county has added a host of other amenities including online payment options; agendas, minutes and meeting packets; budget and financial reports; searchable property records; interactive maps; and streaming broadcasts and archived audio of county government meetings.
Among improvements to the site is an expanded index of frequently used county services, as well as links to services provided by the state, federal and nonprofit agencies. The site also features an expanded news and events section on the front page to highlight recent and upcoming events in county government.
