The City of Jasper logo and website have been given a face-lift.

Last night, the Jasper City Council officially unveiled the city’s new website and logo.

The new website replaces the city’s 10-year-old former website. Jasper mayor Terry Seitz says the new website has been a process. He also thanked several people in the city government offices for leading the way with the changes:

The new website will feature more pictures and will be much more user friendly according to Seitz. Seitz says the goal of the new site is to make things comfortable for the people who visit the site and the city:

Some of the other features on the new website will include, but not be limited to:

– Community calendar/meeting schedule
– City of Jasper news postings
– Document Center (archive/PDF capable)
– Citizen’s Action Center (for concerns)
– Online Access to permits/forms
– Mobile capable functionality
– Interactive mapping

City officials say the site will continue to undergo upgrades even as it is live online. Other possibilities for the future include an agenda builder for meetings and an online payment system.

As mentioned earlier, a new city logo was also unveiled to the council and those in attendance at last night’s meeting. Seitz says city officials are very proud of the new logo. He says the rollout of the new logo will also include city vehicles:

Seitz says he led the efforts to make the new logo. He says the new logo will be rolled out and integrated across city departments over a period of time.
