Wagoner County Launches New Website
WAGONER, OKLA. – July 25, 2011 – Officials of Wagoner County recently launched a new website at wagonercounty.ok.gov. The new web site offers new functionality for Wagoner County by offering residents the opportunity to sign-up to receive email notifications from the County and conveniently find contact information for any department within the County. A calendar of events is included plus frequently asked questions for those new to navigating county government.
“It’s important that the citizens of Wagoner County feel well informed regarding County government,” said Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, James Hanning. “The new website provides just that, a one-stop-shop for all things Wagoner County.”
Visitors to the website will find information regarding elected officials, emergency services (including 9-1-1, emergency management, and county fire services), planning and zoning, courts, boards, trustees and commissions, and the history of Wagoner County. Additionally, there are links to land records, tax records, and maps and plats filed in the county. Planning and Zoning regulations are also on-line at this site.
The new site, built through OK.gov’s Go Gov! Web Management Suite, allows Wagoner County staff to easily build and maintain a website without the knowledge of programming languages. The system utilizes the new state agency template, which provides a common look for all Oklahoma’s agency websites and gives website visitors a sense of security in that they are visiting an official Oklahoma government website. With the help of RSVP volunteer Dean Atteberry, and the team work of all elected officials and department heads, Wagoner County has a website that can grow and develop along with the County.
