Randolph Wins “Best Website” Award
Posted: December 2, 2014
The Township of Randolph took top honors for the best municipal web site in the 53rd annual municipal public information contest sponsored by Rutgers Center for Government Services, the NJ League of Municipalities and the NJ Municipal Management Association.
The purpose of the contest, open to all 565 municipalities, is to promote the use of successful and innovative techniques that increase government’s ability to meet citizen needs and improve access to government services.
The recent upgrade of the township website, a 2014 goal of the mayor and council, translates into a more mobile-friendly environment and easier access to information. With approximately 42% of site visitors using some type of mobile device to reach the township website, cutting down on unnecessary graphics and clutter became a priority. And, in keeping with a citizen-centric philosophy, the site continues to provide for clear cut navigation—information is organized based on the functions and services available to residents rather than on the township’s internal structure.
“The league award is a great honor,” said Township Manager Steve Mountain. “There are many outstanding municipal websites across the state so to be selected as the best is a tremendous achievement. I am happy for Randolph and very happy for web developer Pavia Kriegman of paviaweb.com. She is a tremendous web designer and I know that without her hard work and creativity, this award would not have been possible.”
Mayor Jim Loveys accepted the award on behalf of the township at the League of Municipalities annual conference in Atlantic City the week before Thanksgiving.
