RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of agreement and related documents with Vision Internet to modernize and upgrade the Official Nueces County Website, that will include new navigation and web page design.
BACKGROUND
The Nueces County website has been available since 2003, and provides a means to access departmental information, elections, records, jury information, meeting schedules, budget information, fine and fee payment, voter registration, and phone book, as well as access several web based systems. The website was developed using HTML-4 which has been replaced by HTML-5 which includes many advanced features that were not available when the original development was done.
DISCUSSION
The update and redesign of the website will provide a more intuitive method of navigating through menus and pages without the need for repetitive mouse clicks to select menus and links to subordinate web pages. The content management tools included as part of the project will facilitate changes to web pages, and also allow departments to change their own content as needed. The project will include the migration of 200 pages of the website to the new design format, with training to utilize the tools and features to manage, update, or add web pages to the current site. New web features will also include directories for departments, registration for events and facilities, rotating banners, calendars, job applications, as well as many other features.
