Today is the day! Welcome to the new Jefferson County website! We’re excited to bring you this new website that we are confident will make doing business online with the county a better experience.
One of our largest improvements is that our site is now mobile responsive. That means that the website will automatically resize itself to your screen – anytime, anywhere, anyplace. Try it out – pull it up on your phone and see how the menus, buttons and screens will resize so that you can see and use everything on the site.
We focused on the user in this customer-centric redesign. Data and analytics help us understand what things are accessed most and we made it a priority that those items be accessed in three clicks or less. And for our regular users, we provide easy ways to get right to where you know you need to be.
Watch our website video tour are read below to learn more about a few of the new features and functions of this website that will help you find what you need:
The search provides a quick and easy to find what you need, including a predictive search that provides options based on your query.
The Global Navigation provides clear and easy navigation to all areas of the website. You can find things by types of service or directly to the department or division.
These buttons will provide one-click access to our most used areas of our website. Some will remain standard; others will change throughout the year based on what users need most at that time. These also change as you move into a different section of the website (like the Sheriff’s Office), bringing that information one click closer.
The sticky bar provides one-click access things such as events and social media platforms. It also gives you a way to get back to the Jefferson County home page, if needed, from anywhere in the website.
You can subscribe to receive an email or text message when information gets updated on our website. Types of content you can subscribe to is events calendar, news, alerts, bid postings and more.
You can use an online, fillable form to submit your question or request. These forms may also provide options on where to find the information you’re looking for, getting you what you need quicker.
When there is a need to alert the county of an emergency or important notification, a large bar will appear on every page of the website. Updates will also be posted here as the situation progresses.
Some areas of our website will change their look and provide easier access to the details of that department with changes to their global navigation and graphic buttons.
So, navigate, search and click around to see all the different ways to find the information you’re looking for.
