Muskegon County is pleased to announce the launch of its redesigned website at www.muskegoncounty.net. The new website has a fresh, contemporary look making it easier for residents to navigate, access services, find information and engage with local government.
The County collaborated with vendor CivicPlus to create the new website based on feedback from employees and citizens.
While still containing links to the County Departments individual pages, the new site also incorporates some new features which make it easier for citizens to quickly find specific information. A sample of the new features are:
• How Do I… lists many of the most popular links for residents to apply for employment or various licensing, sign up for mailing lists, submit payments, or find reports and meeting information.
• How can we help you is displayed on each page in the top right-hand corner. Suggestions appear when you begin typing what you are looking for. This intuitive search helps you quickly find the information available.
• Board meeting schedules, agendas and minutes are available via the calendar on the home page or through the Agenda Center.
• Our Geographical Information System (GIS) area offers many online mapping applications to access property information, County Commissioner jurisdiction maps, election polling precincts, available Land Bank properties and much more.
One of the priorities was making the new site mobile compliant. The county website receives over 40,000 visits each month with more than 50% coming from smartphones and tablets.
Please check back often as departments will continue to update content and expand the online services as they become available.
