Pittsboro, NC— On November 18, 2021, Chatham County government launched a redesigned website: chathamcountync.gov. Along with a sleek update in appearance, the new website is designed to make it easier for residents, businesses, and other members of the public to find what they need.
The Chatham County homepage has several great features including simplified navigation, more user-friendly calendar of events, and Board of Commissioners section. A new feature on the homepage is the “Service Finder” tool. This interactive feature takes web users to the service(s) they are looking for with just a few clicks. For example, if a resident wants to pay their water bill, the prompts on the dropdown menus take them directly to the webpage to pay.
“We are thrilled our new website has come to fruition after nearly a year of gathering feedback from the public and staff, compiling web user data, and testing usability,” said Chatham County Public Information Officer Kara Lusk Dudley. “We think the community is going to love how intuitive our new site is, and how easy it is to find what they are looking for.”
Visitors of the Chatham County website will want to make sure they are using an updated browser, such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, etc. Microsoft Internet Explorer is not supported. While the website name is the same, users who have previously bookmarked pages will likely need to navigate to those pages and update their bookmarks.
“We constantly strive to provide superior service to our community members, and accessibility to information is critical to connecting the people with the programs, services, and leaders of their local government,” said Chatham County Manager Dan LaMontagne. “We look forward to the public navigating our new site with ease so that they are able to get the assistance and information they need.”
Website visitors can tell the county what they think of the new site by providing feedback through the county website.
