County council wants your say on web resdesign

Northumberland County wants you – to offer your input on its website redesign.

A redesign focus-group meeting is planned at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 23 to seek input from the public as part of the process, which began earlier this summer.

“The goal of the website redesign project is to update the county's main website, increasing accessibility, user-friendliness and visual appeal,” the press release said.

The project began with a July on-line survey to obtain feedback and suggestions regarding the current design and to gain an understanding of user needs for the new version.

The next stage involves seeking feedback regarding the organization of information for the new site, focusing on the design of menus and pages, the release continued.

“The objective is to ensure people can find the information they are looking for on this website as quickly and intuitively as possible.”

The meeting will take place at the county building (665 Courthouse Rd., Cobourg), and anyone interested is asked to register by e-mailing or calling 905-372-3329 ext. 2277.
