Mayor Craig A. Moe has announced that the City of Laurel will launch its new web site, www.laurel.md.us, on Monday, January 11, 2010. It has an exciting, brand new look and Mayor Moe said the new web site has many new features such as tabbed navigation, which will get you through the website with ease, you will now be able to sign up to receive City emergency notifications at home or on your cell phones, pictured featured stories that will scroll on the home page and RSS ("Really Simple Syndication") feeds, which is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works, just to name a few.
Many features that are favorites to the City’s web visitors will continue, such as access to the annual City Budget, Capital Improvements Program, Press Releases, and minutes and agenda for the Mayor and City Council and City Boards and Commissions. The City Blog, “LAUREL STRAIGHT UP”, can be found on the web site and will be more current on City news and activities than ever before.
Mayor Moe is inviting all of Laurel’s Citizens to visit the web site to familiarize themselves with the information and opportunities available to them. He hopes they will check the web site often because more exciting advancements will occur this year. Registration for Parks and Recreation programs on-line will soon be available, in addition to being able to apply for facility rentals. Also, permit application will be introduced as well as other opportunities to pay for City services (i.e. special pickups, some permits, etc.) on line by credit card.
Mayor Moe stated he was pleased with this new addition to his “Government to the People” Program citing the importance of taking advantage of all media opportunities to keep the residents and businesses informed of what is going on with their City. www.laurel.md.us – check it out!
