Lincoln’s new and updated website offers more information about the community to help both residents and visitors know what the city has to offer.
“Technology is always changing, and we felt it was time our website changed,” said Tonja Ramey, public relations officer for the City of Lincoln. “Not only does the website look better, but we also updated the content and how it functions.”
The new website can be found at lincolnalabama.com.
Ramey said the city’s goal is to provide a high level of information for both residents and visitors on a daily basis, and the website is one way to help do that.
“Our new website is easier to read,” she said. “It’s also easier to find what you are looking for on it now.”
Ramey said new features include email, social media links, a community calendar for city events and resident events, applications from different city departments and a “How Do I” guide.
“We want to communicate and connect with the people who use our website,” she said. “We are quite proud of it, but know there is still work to do.”
Ramey said there has been activity on the new Action Center portion of the website, where residents can report issues and concerns such as water leaks, potholes, missing street signs and more.
“The Action Center has been very helpful so far,” she said.
Ramey said the city is looking for feedback regarding the website, which visitors can provide by answering a two-question survey on the website. The survey asks what visitors like about the website and how the city can improve the website.
“We would like to see more participation in the business directory to get our local businesses signed up so we can list them on the website,” she said. “It’s free and we want visitors to know about the quality eating establishments and other businesses located in Lincoln.”
Ramey said the community bulletin boards are a great way to keep up with Lincoln events. Residents can also submit events so the community will know about them.
“We are looking for locally-submitted pictures to feature on the site, so if you have any you would like to submit please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org,” she said. “We will continually update the website with the current topics, special announcements and other vital news to build better relationships, and hope everyone will spread the word.”
