GIC is restarting web projects with municipalities, prioritizing towns that have no or little web presence, and then working our way to those with an established presence. Please reach out to the GIC’s Director, Dana Rohrbough with questions or for more information.
The GIC designs and develops responsive websites in a content management system (CMS) for local governments throughout the state of Delaware. The Municipal Web Developer’s Group, which has the goal of fostering inter-governmental discussion and collaboration, grew from this service. Websites developed by GIC for towns and municipalities are easy to manage, budget-friendly, and dynamic.
