Lee County Arkansas said it has launched its first-ever website last week at http://leecounty.arkansas.gov.
The website was developed in partnership with the Information Network of Arkansas (INA) and the Connect Arkansas e-Community Strategies Program.
LeeCounty.Arkansas.gov is a big step toward the county´s goal of making local government services and information transparent and accessible to the public. It uses responsive design technology, which allows residents to view the site comfortably on computers, smart phones, and tablets.
The website provides listings of county news and events, county services, departments, officials and a personnel directory.
Website development was funded in part by a grant from Connect Arkansas. INA built the website within a content management system that enables Lee County staff to update site information.
Connect Arkansas, established in 2007, is a private, non-profit corporation dedicated to increasing high-speed Internet subscription and improving and sustaining Internet adoption throughout Arkansas.
The Information Network of Arkansas is a public-private partnership between the state of Arkansas and the Arkansas Information Consortium that helps state government entities web-enable their information services. Little Rock-based AIC is part of egovernment firm NIC´s (NASDAQ: EGOV) family of companies.
