West Miami’s website will soon be up and running after a four-month layoff.
City Manager Yolanda Aguilar said the website has been down and West Miami doesn’t have an Information Technology (IT) department.
“The City does not have an IT Department and we have had to prioritize,” she wrote in an e-mail. She added that the www.cityofwestmiamifl.com should be running by the end of this month.
The old website was powered by Health Choice Network as a donation. The site is vital for residents, she said.
“Visitors have access to all departments, mayor and city commissioners, forms, financial information, parks and recreation, passport services, public works, code enforcement, etc,” she wrote.
Avenet Web Solutions will be working on the new site. The newly design website will cost $3,575, which will include license for the government office, web hosting, customer support and maintenance, two free POP 3 e-mail accounts, training and one-year hosting.
The new site will have different features.
“It will be a user friendly site with information on services, agendas for meetings, minutes, forms, summer camp, special events, access to our code/charter, audit/financials of the city of West Miami, community center activities, links to the county, legislation and all the departments showcased via the website. We are also looking at the pay online feature,” she wrote.
