Clearzoning, Inc. is now offering affordable website development services for local governments.
For years, Clearzoning, Inc. has been creating new websites and web pages for planning projects. During this time, our staff has observed that many small cities, townships, and villages may have a web presence, but many of their websites are not visually appealing and are not kept up-to-date. Clearzoning now uses its expertise in design and information services to take local government websites to a new level at an affordable price. The following describes our basic website development service:
- Develop main sub-headings for website menu bar in consultation with client (For example: Home, Boards & Commissions, Community Profile, Departments, News, & Maps | Data)
- Provide draft to municipality for review. Make one set of revisions, if necessary
- Upload and launch new website. Municipality to provide domain information and password or a new domain will be created
- Train municipal staff on how to update website and keep calendar current
- Submit website to major search engines
- Provide free emails for municipal officials and staff using the username@domain convention.
In addition to the above, CZ will maintain the website on a hosting site and provide phone assistance to local officials regarding keeping the site up to date.
Additionally, our monthly maintenance agreement can include a monthly blog post for the News tab written by CZ staff. Our staff will interview the one or two local officials or staff by phone once per month to determine latest news and then write a short news update (approximately 400 words) so the website is always is current with the latest information. This can be adjusted to be more or less frequent, depending upon the community’s needs. Because we understand municipal government, we know the right questions to ask and we understand customer service.
We also have professional photographers on staff. Our basic service includes a portrait session to take photographs of up to 10 staff or officials (within a 60 mile radius of our offices). CZ staff can also photograph the municipality to show the rest of the world the unique qualities of the local community.
