Oakmont officials launch new website
Oakmont officials launched a new website Monday in order to improve communication with residents.
The redesigned oakmontborough.com allows users to find borough forms and schedules, as well as activities and government functions, more efficiently. The mobile site also received a boost and a more user-friendly menu tab.
Borough officials said the previous site was antiquated.
Resident Luke Kutilek provided photos from around the borough and Oakmont events, which can be viewed on the site’s front page.
The site also features a “hot topics” section where people can learn more about volunteer and employment opportunities and other information.
GovUnity Websites of Cranberry designed the site.
The business, which was established in 2009, has experience working with municipalities and has revamped websites for Dormont, Butler, East Deer, Lancaster and the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office.
The Oakmont redesign project cost $4,100 and was led by Councilwoman Carrie DelRosso and administrative assistant Jill Springer.
“The new website provides a much better ease of use as well as a much needed modernization,” DelRosso said. “The borough is working to ensure information is available in a timely manner.”
DelRosso said information is still being added to the site. The agenda for council’s April 15 voting session was not posted until some time after the meeting.
“Everything is a work in progress, and I invite input as we move forward,” DelRosso said.
DelRosso said she, borough staff and Councilman Randy Galm will continue to work with GovUnity to develop an extensive tutorial for the site.
Those who wish to give feedback on the website can call the borough office at 412-828-3232 or mail administrators via the directory under the “Government” tab.
