Municipal Websites


 

The GIC provides assistance to local governments, including designing and hosting responsive websites in a content management system (CMS). The GIC also hosts and takes the lead in the Municipal Web Developer’s Group, which has the goal of fostering inter-governmental discussion and collaboration.

If your town or municipality is in need of a website or an upgrade to an existing website that is easy to manage, budget friendly, and looks professional, consider a FREE responsive content management system (CMS) website from the Government Information Center.

No Non-Government Advertisements: A Gov Internet domain may not be used to advertise for private individuals, firms, or corporations, or imply in any manner that the government endorses or favors any specific commercial product, commodity, or service.

No Political of Campaign Information: The Gov Internet domain is for the operation of government, not the political, political party, or campaign environment. No campaigning can be done using .gov domains. The Gov Internet domain websites may not be directly linked to or refer to websites created or operated by a campaign or any campaign entity or committee. No political sites or party names or acronyms can be used. Separate wesbites and e-mail on other top-level domains (TLDs), such as .org, will have to be used for political activity.
