El Dorado County seeking input on website redesign

Submitted to the Tribune

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — El Dorado County on Thursday published a website survey for its residents to provide input on everything from how they prefer to receive information to what types of information are most important and useful, to the way the website looks and functions and many issues in between.

“The county’s website is the most visible, accessible and comprehensive tool to keep our citizens informed and updated on the thousands of services and activities it offers and should be responsive to the needs of those we serve,” said Director of Communications and Outreach Carla Hass. “While we have some ideas on how to improve it, we’re asking the end users, the public, to provide their input so we can launch a new website that is more functional and intuitive.”

The county last revamped the website more than six years ago and since then has added small-scale functionality and changes but hasn’t taken a full-scale approach to updating. The website currently has more than 4,000 pages that will be assessed for usefulness, importance, accuracy, functional links, and content when redesigning the site.

“Technology changes so rapidly, and our county is changing too, in terms of what our residents need and expect from government information tools,” said Hass. “With the input from this short survey, we hope to develop a new website that not only improves on what we currently provide but exceeds the expectations and needs of our public.”

The survey will be open until Feb. 10. The link can be found here.
