Municipal Web Design and Development
Providing valuable information and user-friendly tools to constituents is a high priority goal for most town, city, county and other government and civic organizations. However, technology is constantly changing and improving, and it can be difficult for municipalities of all sizes to keep up. Local government websites need accessibility, compliance, and security, along with easy to use content management systems and solutions. What worked previously might not work today and it's quite easy for municipal sites to become outdated, lack newer technological capabilities, and not be as organized or user-friendly as the needs of today's users dictate.
We're here to help! Our government web design solutions are geared to fit towns, cities, counties or other municipalities of all sizes. At CWS, our goal is to create modern, user-friendly, customizable, intuitive and dynamic websites that provide up-to-date information to residents, businesses, students, and visitors that outline and highlight the benefits of living, working, visiting, and playing there.
CWS helps our municipal clients market themselves more effectively and efficiently and we provide customized, professional design, cutting edge technological web programming solutions, along with impeccable customer service. And our marketing services for towns, cities, and counties don't stop there ... whether you need a new logo, brochures or other print design, display or booth design for an upcoming event, are in need of web marketing (search engine optimization and social media optimization), or are looking for consulting for 508, ADA, or WCAG for your website, we can help with all of your marketing efforts.

When properly designed and implemented, your image should reflect the level of your company's commitment to quality, excellence, service, and relationships with your various constituents including current clients, potential clients, employees and future staff, competitors, partners, other government entities, and the general public at large. Therefore, your image should be thoroughly thought out, planned, executed, monitored, and modified when needed.
