SCUGOG: The Township of Scugog wants resident input on their website redesign project.
Scugog council recently approved their 2023 capital budget, and one of the approved projects in that budget is a $150,000 website creation project.
A report in the approved budget explained, the current Scugog website was developed in 2016 and had “a refresh done in early 2021.”
“Last year, we conducted an IT-centric survey, to understand the areas of customer service you would like to see improved. Based on the results of the survey, a key component in enhancing our customer service approach is improving usability on our website. We have listened to your input and are happy to announce, we have begun the first steps of implementing a new website platform for Scugog.ca. The website modernization will be done in phases over the next year, and a key component is resident input,” read a recent Scugog Township press release.
At a meeting, on Tuesday, February 21st, clerk Becky Jamieson explained how residents could provide their input regarding this project.
“We are looking for residents to participate in an in-person sitemap focus group, on Thursday, March 2nd, from 9 a.m. until noon, with limited space on a first come, first served basis.”
To submit your name for this focus group, go online to my.scugog.ca/website.
“We also want to provide everyone [an] equal opportunity to give their input, so we have opened a survey on the same webpage, which will allow you to submit suggestions and feedback directly to the Township of Scugog,” the Scugog Township press release added. “Questions and ideas can also be publicly submitted through the forums on the same page.”
