Submitted by Howard Owens on December 24, 2013 - 10:38am
The City of Batavia is pleased to announce the completion of its new Web site for City residents, businesses and visitors. As part of the City’s Strategic Plan to improve public communications and access to public information, the City has developed a Web site that includes interactive ways to communicate with residents, businesses and visitors.
New features of the Web site include online service requests designed to reduce response time by encouraging users to e-mail requests directly to the managing City department and e-news subscriptions allowing users to register to receive e-mail notifications when specific information of their interest is posted to the Web site. In addition, the public can also sign up to receive text alerts when urgent alerts, such as water line breaks or emergencies, are posted on the Web site.
The City's new Web site provides comprehensive community information and helps the user gain an appreciation for the many positive things the City of Batavia community has to offer in a user-friendly way. The newly added Business, Residents & Visitors sections provide access to an abundance of community information and resources, while the Web site calendar allows users to view community events by department, event, public meetings or notices.
Sixth Ward Councilwoman Rose Mary Christian said, “The Batavia site is more than I expected -- it’s outstanding! Residents are now able to search the site from weather to demographics to printing the STAR exemptions and reading meeting agendas and minutes. Everything anyone needs can be found on the new site, job well done.”
Councilman-at-Large Brooks Hawley added “I'm proud of being part of a City that puts out such a modern and professional looking Web site. It is easy to navigate for residents, businesses and visitors. The pictures and information on the Web site are a great way to highlight the many wonderful aspects of the City. I encourage all residents to check out the Web site and give us feedback with the online survey."
The City's Web site address is still www.batavianewyork.com. All users are encouraged to explore the site, take the Web site survey and provide feedback. Suggestions and comments will be used to continue to improve the Web experience for all users.
