Online PR News – 10-September-2012 – -- – San Francisco, CA - The city of Santa Fe is about to launch a new website in the coming year. According to the planners, the new site will offer better access to useful information and will provide good quality services.

The marketing manager of the city, Carla Lopez, said this Monday that they have signed a contract of $250,000 with a Santa Fe company called Desert Elements Design. As a result of the new the site it will also save the cost of the city in long run in many ways.

In the beginning of the spring season the city will own and maintain the site its self rather then continuing the contract with a Civic Plus, which will cost about $33,200 per annum as maintenance cost.

It is expected that the new site will be up and running by March and will have fresh new content that is not present in the current site along with more robust search features that the old site did not have.

Since the search feature on the old site was something that the people complained about a lot, the new search feature of the site will be much more efficient and will give fast and efficient results. The handling of the customer requests which is also know as a citizen response system will also be fast and efficient on the new site, along with the section on bid solicitation and other procurement.

However Lopez still can’t guarantee that the new website is going to improve the information across the board, since the information, such as public meeting material for instance, will only be posted when the staff in charge of any particular meeting make it happen.
