Habanero Consulting Group (Habanero), is pleased to announce that the City of Surrey has won the UBCM (Union of British Columbia Municipalities) award for Best Local Government Website in the large city category.
Habanero partnered with the City to create a brand new site (www.city.surrey.bc.ca), which launched in April of this year. The site, with a revised, intuitive navigation system, a clean and impactful design and reams of new content, has become a proven winner with website visitors. Further, Habanero assisted in the implementation of a content management system (Microsoft's MSCMS), that has succeeded in simplifying the process of content creation and publishing.
"We're really proud of our website," said Mayor Doug McCallum on behalf of Council. "Beyond providing a wealth of easy to access information, it forms the basic foundation upon which we're building a 24 X 7 on-line City Hall, complete with a comprehensive suite of e-government services."
The UBCM Award for Best Local Government website will be presented to the City of Surrey in a formal ceremony at the UBCM conference in September.
