   Summit County Engineer’s office announces new website

 
Akron, Ohio – Alan Brubaker, P.E., P.S., Summit County Engineer rolled out a newly designed website this morning. The website still includes all of the functions of the previous website with additional features that will increase both public and private industry efficiency when utilizing the records and forms available online.
 
The new design makes the website more user friendly. Content was reorganized in a streamlined fashion so citizens will need to spend minimal time and effort finding the information they need. In addition, the website also offers news and traffic alerts via RSS feed, allowing the public to get real time updates about road closing and construction projects. The “projects” section now utilizes Google Maps in order to show the exact parameters of any construction project planned or in progress.
 
The website was created and designed within the County and is hosted using County servers. This move will save the Engineer’s office $2400 a year in hosting expenses.
 
“It is a goal of this office to use new technologies to our advantage and better serve the public,” said Brubaker. “Any way that we can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of communication with the citizens at a cheaper cost, we are going to implement it. I hope the public will find the new website helpful and easy to use”.
 
The website address is www.summitengineer.net. For more information, please contact the Engineer’s office at 330.643.2850.
