Latrobe City Council launched its new webpage at the weekend, which takes on the ‘Latrobe City a new energy’ theme and introduces a number of new features and services.
Latrobe Chief Executive Officer, Richard Hancock, said the design of the new webpage was the result of significant work by the organisation, and takes into account feedback from citizens, community groups, local businesses and staff.
"We set out to deliver an extremely user-friendly site that would provide those seeking information about Council issues and the community at large with ease of access to information, in a friendly, inviting environment," Mr Hancock said.
"Whether you are a local citizen seeking information on Council services such as immunisations or your garbage collection; whether you are after detailed Council documents such as agendas, minutes or media releases; or whether you are an interstate or overseas internet user seeking regional tourism or business information; we believe the new webpage will deliver the information you want," Mr Hancock said.
Mr Hancock said a number of new features had been built into the webpage that would benefit users.
"Firstly we are facilitating the increasing use of electronic funds transfer to pay accounts, by providing a means of paying rates on-line. In addition, we are including a community groups directory and events calendar, so that citizens will find it easier to network with local groups and participate in events being run in Latrobe City," Mr Hancock said.
"This is also about empowering the community, so that citizens not only have access to information, but can raise issues with Council. A new ‘have your say’ feature provides a forum for citizens to raise issues on Council and regional matters, and invite others to comment upon, concur with, or disagree with them on those issues, Mr Hancock said.
"Additional features of the webpage to be considered in the future may include regular information about Council’s financial performance and webcasting of Council meetings.
"Above all, we believe it is important that our citizens find the webpage as simple to use as possible. We have incorporated a search facility, an easy to find A-Z index, and a site map. In reality a couple of clicks at the most should get you exactly where you want to go," Mr Hancock said.
"We will welcome community feedback on the ease of access and the quality and scope of material being posted on the page, and of course reports of any ineffective links. The new webpage is now up and running and I’m sure our citizens will find it of great benefit in their day-to-day business," Mr Hancock added.
Council’s new webpage can be accessed at www.latrobe.vic.gov.au
