Buckley gets new website, Facebook presence

A desire to provide more information recently brought a new website and Facebook presence to the city of Buckley.

A desire to provide more information recently brought a new website and Facebook presence to the city of Buckley.

The effort has been well received, according to City Hall staff. Visits to the website and Facebook page have jumped during the past couple of months.

A complete redesign of the website allows for new information and features.

“You’ll notice a more streamlined homepage with easy access to information that the public requests most frequently,” Mayor Pat Johnson said.

New content and navigation of the city site is based on the needs of residents and visitors and provides multiple ways for people to find what they need in a convenient manner. There is also a newly-designed mobile version of the website designed to display, navigate, and search for items easily on mobile phones and devices.

The new website, for example, allows citizens to better keep tabs on local government. City Council agendas are supplemented with full packets of information and, following council sessions, audio recordings are available. The same goes for the city’s Planning Commission.

Community news and events are displayed on the home page, with an easy link to local calendars.

The city website is found at www.cityofbuckley.com; the Facebook page is at www.facebook.com/buckleywashington.

Both the website and Facebook page highlight the natural beauty of the area through the work of several local photographers. The city continues to seek new local photographs of the area and community events (photo credit will be given). Photos, questions, or comments about the new website or Facebook page may be emailed to citywebsite@cityofbuckley.com.
