The city is gearing up for the launch of its redesigned website.

City Manager Justin Erickson said his staff just received the first part of its training Tuesday.

“The website is so close,” he said. “We will be testing and finalizing the site soon with an anticipated launch in March.”

He said the city is hopeful that the public will appreciate the new site and its ease of use.

“What we found out is that more than half of our web traffic is from mobile devices,” he said. “Accordingly, the new website is designed to be very readable and useable regardless of if someone is on a smartphone, a tablet or a traditional computer.”

It incorporates the new community branding elements and will mesh well with our public education efforts and social media, Erickson said.

Watch for updates.
