City of Idaho Falls launches new website

The City of Idaho Falls has launched a new look and redesign for its official website.

The City hopes that the new user-friendly design will make navigating the City of Idaho Falls website much easier than the prior site which launched in 2009.The city designed the primary navigation buttons and tabs to put the most used content front and center on the new site and the new site is also responsive to mobile devices.

The design was developed specifically for the City of Idaho Falls. The homepage features city news, events, meetings and links to current topics and frequently requested information. Four department-specific designs that mirror the city’s main page were part of this first phase of the redesign – Idaho Falls Police Department, Idaho Falls Regional Airport, Parks & Recreation and Idaho Falls Power. Additional department designs will be added in the coming years.

The city invested approximately $60K in the new website that included redesign, content migration, on-site training and a one-year hosting fee. Using funding allocated in the new website FY2015/2016 budget, the committee hired local photographer, Sherri Barnes, for high-resolution images to incorporate into the website. City employees also contributed to the photography.

“The website committee worked diligently to find a website company with extensive experience in city government and to create a design based on analytics and customer needs,” states Mayor Rebecca Casper. “For more than six months, these employees worked on the design, content migration, functionality and employee training, all while performing their other day-to-day responsibilities. I commend Project Manager, Derek Wood, in the IT Division and he City’s Public Information Officer, Kerry Hammon for the project leadership. The entire website committee is be praised for its attention to detail, professionalism and dedication to this project. They came in under budget and delivered a clean, citizen-centric design,” adds Casper.

A mobile app will be added this spring. The smartphone app will allow citizens to submit concerns via their mobile devices, as well as receive alerts and push notifications.
