It's been over 10 years since the last significant update to our website, which is something close to a century in website years, and while the launch of a new municipal government website isn't going to reach many people's threshold for important breaking news, we're pretty excited about it anyway.
That excitement comes from all the new ways our updated site will allow residents throughout Spartanburg to better connect with their local government and find the information they're looking for. From the ability to sign up for automatic email or text alerts when new calendar events or City Council agendas are posted, to the prominent and usable search function, to the important government transparency shortcuts on our homepage, this new site was conceived from the ground up as a tool to make connecting with us and staying involved much easier.
Today on the podcast, we're discussing the new site's features and how we hope you'll find them useful.
