County launches more user-friendly website


The Greene County government website has gotten a makeover that makes it easier for users to find information and stay informed on county activities.

The county launched the redesigned website over the weekend marking the first major aesthetic overhaul since it was created in 1997, according to the county geographic information system department.

The county initiated the recent changes to encourage better communication with the community, said David Graham, the Greene County auditor.

“I think it’s going to be a lot easier to navigate and find information,” Graham said. “This will hopefully bring all their (county departments) information in one place. That’s the ultimate goal.”

The GIS office is overseen by the Greene County Auditor’s Office.

The redesigned website (www.co.greene.oh.us) is more colorful than the previous version and includes iconic images relevant to the county’s history — agriculture, aviation and the courthouse.

Users can now sign up for email and text message alerts from various county departments. They can also choose to be notified about emergencies, bid postings, government jobs, agendas and calendar items.

“It allows us to instantaneously get information out to the public,” said Steve Tomcisin, the GIS director.

The modified website also allows users to report potholes, roadkill and mailbox damage from mowers or snow removal on county roads.

Another new feature includes more detailed real estate property information on the county auditor’s website. Users can view every tax and levy on a parcel of land and they also have the ability to export real property information into another file.

“At the end of the day it’s a little more user friendly and eye catching too,” Tomcisin said.
