Residents logging on to the Murrumbidgee Council website will notice a few changes.
The new-look website has arrived ahead of the newly elected Council following several months of planning.
Council’s General Manager Craig Moffitt said the site is the first stage in improving online business transactions.
“In redesigning our website we wanted a focus on improving user experience to help people find what they want,” he said.
“We’re working towards a website that is fully integrated with our business so that it offers customers all the services you would expect from face-to-face dealings.
“Things like lodging requests and reporting issues will now be easier to do.
“We’ve changed the website to give it a modern and fresh look, incorporating our new brand colours.
“A new content management system will provide the foundation for extra technology to be added in the future.”
The new website includes information on paying rates, with future options for online rates payments, and there are quick access links to Council agendas and minutes.
Should residents have feedback on Council's new website; they can complete an online survey.
Over the coming weeks Council’s new website will continue to be fully developed, including the addition of a searchable business directory.
