An outdated website designed in 2009 unexpectedly crashed last month, leaving administrators scrambling to roll out a new site that wasn't planned to launch until November.
In addition to a fresh, "up to date" appearance, the website - which has the same address, http://ci.perrysburg.oh.us - is designed to incorporate more maps and give visitors access to the most pertinent information, according to Administrator Bridgette Kabat.
Gary Kleinfelter, the city's information technology manager, said a "what's trending" section on the main page will allow residents to view the most popular items at a given time, such as a brush pick-up or Halloween schedule during the fall.
When software specialist Ian Dunn was designing the site, he also aimed to compress old documents and make it more user-friendly with a "new look and new feel," Kleinfelter said.
Dunn is "the one who's put all the legwork into this thing," he added.
Additional information will be added over time, as organizers had to move without some features to get a site up as soon as possible.
Kleinfelter said as many as 25 percent of visitors to the old website viewed it from a mobile device. In response, mobile version of the new website could be up and running by Jan. 1.
