Hall County website redesign to cost $78,000

POSTED: May 19, 2014 7:19 p.m.

In recent weeks, Hall County unveiled a new logo and slogan as part of a rebranding and marketing campaign.

Now, officials are pressing forward on the next stage, preparing to redesign the government website.

The Hall County Board of Commissioners is expected to award a $78,000 contract when it meets Thursday to Civic Plus of Manhattan, Kan., for the redesign. About $100,000 had been budgeted.

Civic Plus has designed websites for Athens-Clarke County, Lowndes County and Glynn County, among others.

As stipulated in the contract, the company will provide technology upgrades and site maintenance at no added cost; will provide training to government employees on how to navigate the new site; will build a mobile app for the site; and will redesign it again in four years.

County spokeswoman Katie Crumley said the redesign is aimed at making the website more user-friendly, as well as updating information and resource listings. The redesign will incorporate the colors and theme of the new logo and slogan.

The redesign will include features such as “mega-menu,” a one-click stop for access to any information available. It will also include advanced bill-paying options, as well as the ability to sign up for sports leagues and other events.

As more and more Americans do business on the Web, Crumley said it was imperative that local governments provide the resources to contribute to this activity.

County officials said they hoped to get the redesigned website up and running by early 2015 at the latest.

“We know that the world is changing,” Crumley said, adding the county needs to change with it.
