The City of Williams Lake is pleased to announce that it has launched its re-vamped website williamslake.ca.
Designed with CivicPlus, the re-designed website is easier to use, allows for greater user interaction and features a new clean, crisp design to allow easier navigation, as well as the following features:
• The ability to register on the website and participate in Community Voice
discussions about City initiatives
• The ability to take advantage of online financial services, such as claiming the
Home Owners Grant, access current property tax information, and pay
property taxes and utility bills.
• The ability to customize notifications from the City (News items, career
opportunities, meeting agendas, City events)
• A Media Center featuring City videos and multimedia
• An interactive calendar which will allow non-profit groups to list community
events (feature in development)
“The new williamslake.ca is all about the residents,” says Mayor Kerry Cook. “It is easier to navigate and find the information you are looking for, and easy to customize how you hear from us. But the most exciting thing about the new website is the ability for users to engage with the City. You can choose how and what information you receive, and you can add your ideas for the City in a community conversation.”
To celebrate the new website, the City will enter all users who register for the site between May 9th and June 9th into a draw to win one of 12 free swim passes, one of three commemorative 85th birthday blankets, or one six-month facility pass to the Cariboo Memorial Complex.
To register on the new williamslake.ca, click on "Notify Me!" under the "My williamslake" menu of the homepage. Enter your e-mail address and a password to create your profile, and then choose which notifications you wish to receive from the City. The same user information can be used to participate in the Community Voice discussions.
