ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO – It’s here - St. Charles County has launched a new website that is designed to be more responsive to citizens’ needs! While the URL, www.sccmo.org, stays the same, the new site has a bright and colorful look and improved organizational structure, menus, and search capabilities to help citizens find content easily. The site is also easy to use and access through tablet and smart phone devices.
New features to note include:• MyConnections – A portal for citizens to build a personal profile, bookmark most-visited pages, track online forms and request submissions, and more.
• Notify Me – A one-stop location for citizens to register to receive County newsletters, press releases, alerts, bid notifications, and calendar updates via email.
• Agenda Center – Access to agendas and minutes from the County Council and all County boards and commissions in one location.
• Request Tracker – Tool for citizens to report concerns and requests and receive updates on the status, rather than making a phone call or sending an email. The St. Charles County Highway Department will be the first County department to utilize this feature for the public to report road maintenance issues and it is expected to be deployed by more departments in the future.
In addition, the site has an improved calendar system with the ability to view multiple department and boards and commissions calendars from one location, as well as social media sharing capabilities. Additional content and new website features, including new newsletters, calendars, photo albums, and Request Tracker items, will continue to be developed and deployed in the months ahead, so citizens are encouraged to visit frequently. Updates will also be posted on the County’s social media outlets, including www.facebook.com/StCharlesCountyMo, www.twitter.com/sccmo and www.twitter.com/scchealth.
For questions about the new website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that bookmarks to specific documents and pages within the previous website may need to be updated for the new website.
