I'm really excited about this project! Take any smart phone and browse to www.Reno.gov. The mobile website is more than just formatted to fit a cell phone screen - and it’s not an application that must be downloaded. You can navigate the site via the touch screen using specially designed menus. During emergency situations, emergency announcements will appear first on the screen. News and events have been redesigned to be accessed easily from your phone.
We’re hoping to use your feedback on how to make the mobile site better. Please take a moment to try it out and share your ideas here http://www.reno.gov/Index.aspx?page=2066 or let us know on Facebook. Thanks for your help, and don’t forget to bookmark the site on your phone.
Maintaining a consistent government website is tough when you have multiple authors. Download this free template and use it as a starting point for your own Web Author Handbook. Customize it how you wish and adapt it for your own government's needs.
