BURLINGTON – Coffeycountyks.org has a fresh new look, upgraded features, and improved navigation.

The colorful and engaging redesign features local photography from the Capture Coffey County Photo Contest, and large, colorful buttons that make navigating the website easy. The new website is Mobile Responsive, which means it is easily viewed from all devices including tablets and smart phones – something that was missing with the previous website.

The primary goal of the new site is to create a better online resource for residents to find county government information easily. Secondly, the website creates an attractive digital presence for those visiting our community as well.

“It is important to have a great website for our residents so they can access county services with ease,” said Stacy Haines, Economic Development Director and Chair of the Website Committee. “But it is equally as important for visitors, or potential residents, who may visit our website before coming to our county. This is our first impression – our digital doorstep into Coffey County.”

The website redesign includes updated and in-depth information on each county department, as well as recreation and community information. Website visitors will find information on meetings and events through the Calendar and News sections right on the homepage, and will be able to access documents and forms much easier.

The redesign project started in May 2016 when the Website Committee selected Vision Internet as its new website provider. The committee worked with Vision on all aspects of the new design, layout, navigation, and graphics. The committee utilized data, resident feedback, and surveys to form decisions about the new website’s look and navigation. Members of the Website Committee include: Jim Dale, Coffey County Commissioner; Bill Bauer, Technology Director; Stacy Haines, Economic Development Director, Lindsay Payer, Health Department Administrator; Russel Stukey, Emergency Management Coordinator; Randy Rogers, Sheriff; Tim Hammye, Sheriff’s Office Chaplain; Lisa Manwaring, Sheriff’s Office Records Clerk; Ronda Truelove, Economic Development Administrative Assistant; and Angie Kirchner, County Clerk.

“We encourage everyone to visit the new website and provide feedback through the survey on the homepage,” said Haines. “There are always ways to improve the website and make it better for our users, so your feedback is incredibly important.”
