Wellington has launched an updated version of Wellingtonfl.gov, the Village’s official website. The website has been redesigned and redeveloped to be more intuitive and accessible, as well as give the Village’s online presence a fresh and modern look. The redesigned site, which serves more than 200,000 unique visitors and has more than 1 million page views per year, includes major improvements to its design and back-end technology infrastructure and aims to improve the service experience for Wellington residents and businesses.
“Wellington is dedicated to transparency; one of our primary responsibilities is to ensure residents and businesses can access the information and services they need to live, work, and play,” said Village Manager Paul Schofield. “For many people, the Village’s web presence is the primary way they will interact with their local government, so we have created a space which is accessible, service-oriented, and of course, easy to use.”
With more than half of users accessing Wellington’s site via a mobile device, the redesign team focused on improving the mobile experience. The Village worked with government website specialists CivicPlus, of Manhattan, KS, to create the new site which is mobile responsive and accessible on a desktop, laptop, tablet, and mobile device. Designed to be user-friendly, the new Wellingtonfl.gov provides intuitive navigation, quickly directing users to the information they need.
Additional improvements include a cleaner look, and a prioritization of service-oriented functions like bill pay, service request, public records requests, and permit and licensing information.
Among the tools and features the new Wellingtonfl.gov offers are:
- A dynamic home page with updated news and calendar items
- Emergency homepage alerts
- Google Translate enabled
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant
- Improved mobile site
- Integration with Alert Wellington- the Village’s new Emergency Notification System
