Linn County is excited to announce that we have launched our newly redesigned website!
The new LinnCounty.org offers more user-friendly features with a variety of enhancements to elevate your online experience and make doing business online with the County faster and easier.
Throughout the year-long redesign process, we focused on you to create a customer-centered website. We used data, analytics and conducted user testing with Linn County residents to make our most accessed information easy to find.
One of our biggest improvements is that our website is now mobile responsive. That means the website will automatically resize itself to fit the screen of whatever device you are using - a computer, smartphone or tablet. Analytics told us that 44 percent of our website visitors used a mobile device to access the County website last year. We used this information to ensure that our site is accessible for our visitors on a mobile device.
Other examples of the new features and functionality include:
A new homepage layout that provides easy access to County news, meeting agendas, enhanced County events calendars and the ability to subscribe for notifications via email or text message
New access buttons that provide one-click access to some of the most frequently visited areas of the website. These buttons appear on the homepage as well as underneath the content of all interior pages.
Improved global navigation with clear navigation terms and mega menus that make it easier to find and access information by types of service or directly by department. With the new menus, visitors do not need to be versed in departments and structure to find what they are looking for.
An enhanced search bar function with predictive search that offers suggestions as you type in your search terms
A font sizing option that allows visitors to increase the font size of the interior pages with a mouse click
We also updated our news feature to provide you with access to even more news from Linn County. We hope you enjoy receiving news updates and that you will stay subscribed to Linn County news so you can be one of the first to know what’s happening in Linn County government.
Linn County’s redesigned website, using analytics and feedback from user testing, is an extension of Linn County’s Customer-Centered Culture and countywide efforts to increase customer satisfaction. With the new website, Linn County will be able to increase its community engagement and enhance communication with residents.
