City of Toledo launches new website
The City of Toledo contracted with Madhouse Creative LLC to build the new site.
TOLEDO, Ohio — Wednesday, the City of Toledo launched a brand-new website that Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz describes as “more resident and business-friendly”.
According to the city, the new website offers an improved search function, greater ease of navigation, and more opportunities to market Toledo.
“I knew from the day I took office that Toledo needed to increase and improve its communications,” Mayor Kapszukiewicz said. “We have done that with our monthly Wednesdays with Wade series, increased use of social media, and bolstered relationships with community partners and organizations, but we also knew that we needed to develop a new website. I am happy today to launch the new site, which was created with an audience-focused navigation in mind, improved content, and a streamlined flow of information.”
The site took approximately 12 months to create and move information from the previous city website. City staff plan to closely monitor its usage and make changes as needed. Highlights of city services will also adjust with seasonal needs, such as leaf collection in the fall and snow removal in the winter. The new site allows residents to pay utility bills or search for information on city services with much greater ease. The new website prominently features the city’s new logo, which was launched earlier this year.
