In a partnership with CivicPlus, the Village of Bayside has unveiled their newly redesigned website, www.bayside-wi.gov. The new Village of Bayside website offers a bold new design and up-to-date information with the goal to improve citizen engagement, and connect residents, businesses, visitors, and government. Through the use of easy-to-navigate page menu, the Village has successfully achieved form and function in their new website.
Features and functionality of the newly redesigned Village website include:
- Enhanced Report A Concern application
- Email and text message subscription service
- Social Media integration
- Photo gallery
- iPhone App
- Business directory
- Access to employment and bidding information
- News alerts to highlight current events, happenings and emergencies
- Date-driven calendar to display important events and meeting
- A centralized location to store and view agendas and minutes
Using the Report A Concern application, Village staff can quickly and efficiently respond and manage resident concerns and requests. Residents, who can submit concerns using the website, Facebook, or their iPhone, can track the progress of their inquiry from start to finish.
The website also fully integrates all of the Village’s social media outlets, giving residents the ability to stay connected with the Village at all times. From the website, residents can access the Village’s official Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Blog. “For many residents, social media is their preferred way of communication, and by having the ability to access the Village’s social media outlets through the website, it fosters a new wave of resident engagement.” said Village Manager, Andy Pederson.
“We want residents to have everything at their fingertips, a virtual Village Hall of sorts. The Village’s new site is more than just an online posting board. Visitors will have the ability to access information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week; they’ll also be able to sign up for e-mail or text message updates, report concerns and view newsletters and publications that are important to them. And if they cannot find the answer they are looking for, they can simply Live Chat with Village Hall staff during normal business hours” said Village Manager, Andy Pederson.
