The city of Erie’s website just received an upgrade. The relaunch for the website has been in the works for a while now.
Media and Innovation Strategist, Andy Steinmetz has been working with Penn State Behrend for 10 months on the site.
Mayor Joe Schember says that the site is supposed to be easier to navigate.
One major improvement to the site is to make it friendly to users that speak a different language. The site can translate the text to a number of different languages.
Steinmetz says, “The whole point was to make it as intuitive as possible, to make it simple, so that anyone who goes on there, whether they are well versed or not [will find it easy to use]”.
He also says residents will even be able to make payments on the site.
