City of Costa Mesa website powered by Vision Internet

Everything from budget-related items to election documentation to public employee pension information has been aggregated and made easily accessible to the public.

Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) March 28, 2013

The City of Costa Mesa, California has launched a new government website. The new website was created in partnership with Vision Internet - The Government Website Experts™ and showcases a dynamic design, intuitive site navigation, and many convenient online services. It can be visited at http://www.costamesaca.gov.

The new website includes a Transparency section dedicated to openly sharing public information with the citizens of Costa Mesa. Everything from budget-related items to election documentation to public employee pension information has been aggregated and made easily accessible to the public. Costa Mesa’s dedication to transparency was recognized by the Sunshine Review with a 2012 Sunny Award and cited the City as a “shining example of government transparency”.

In addition to readily available information, the website provides citizens with access to a number of online services, such as:

  •     Permit applications
  •     Police report filing
  •     Public record requests
  •     Calendar item submissions
  •     Recreation class sign-up
  •     Online community surveys

By providing these services online, the City has decreased the number of individuals making a trip to City Hall for administrative reasons. The online services are more efficient for citizens and City staff members.

The website provides site visitors with direct links to the City’s social media profiles on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Opening several avenues of communication has created an increase in online community engagement and connectivity.

Visitors of Costa Mesa have a main navigation menu specifically dedicated to their needs. Links to major shopping centers, cultural theaters, and current weather information point visitors in the right direct for a good time in Costa Mesa.

The new website is easily updated and maintained by City staff members using Vision Internet’s award-winning government content management system – the visionCMS™. Powerful tools of the visionCMS™ – such as a WYSIWYG text editor, image libraries, content scheduling, and a content approval cycle – allows the City to stay on top of website updates.
