City website upgraded
A new-look website for the City of Hamilton will offer more options to access services online.
The City said that the site was “designed to be more user-friendly with improved navigation and functionality and in line with its corporate branding”.
Jessica Astwood, its event and marketing manager, explained: “We were long overdue for an upgrade.
“We live in an ever-changing world, especially when it comes to technology. A formative presence online is where we need to be and we hope the new automated processes will bring more users to the site. “Users will be able to explore all that’s on offer from the history of the City, to upcoming events and getting to know our current council members a bit better.”
She added: “We have more to do but this is a solid start.
“It’s still a work in progress, we expect to have kinks along the way, but we hope that the public takes the time to visit the site, engage and take advantage of the services now available.”
More application and payment processes will be provided on the site, which will reduce the need to visit City Hall for certain services.
A press release said: “Transactions such as parking and construction permit applications, the booking of event venues, including the Earl Cameron Theatre and City parks, among others, can now be completed online.
“The new site also features a City calendar affording users a quick look at upcoming events and official City meetings.
“The latest City news, from press releases to traffic notices, is front and centre on the homepage and users will be greeted with an offer to sign up for the CityZen, the City’s invaluable electronic newsletter that is sent out every week.”
The website is at www.cityofhamilton.bm.
