County seeks input to improve web pages
Kitsap County has embarked on a project to improve its website, and is seeking public comment to help shape the new site. An online survey to provide comments is open through April 19. "Web sites will never take the place of face-to-face communication," said Board of County Commissioners Chair Rob Gelder, "but when residents look first to our website for information prior to calling the County, we need to make sure it's up to date and in a format easy to navigate. The design of the website itself cannot be a hindrance to information access. I'm excited that this project is getting underway."
