Edmonson Voice Staff Report
The Edmonson County Fiscal Court has announced the launch of their brand new county government and organization website, edmonsoncounty.org, built by local company Studio DD.
The project is a multi-page website that lists and describes the members of fiscal court, all county officials, county-run offices, organizations, local utilities, local, state and federal law makers, a history of Edmonson County and an easy way to contact any local office.
"This is something that's been necessary for a long time," said Judge Executive Wil Cannon. "People want information quickly and easily, and the best way for that to happen nowadays is through something internet-based."
The new site has a fresh new logo with a county road-sign theme and also features beautiful photos from around the county as background art.
Cannon said the county had a previous site run by the state government in Frankfort but it has not been updated since 2007.
"The old site doesn't help the county at all. It's embarrassing to search for something about Edmonson County and the only thing available on the internet is from 2007. We're working with Frankfort to completely disable the old site and hopefully it will be gone soon. We felt like having a local company take care of this was the right way to go and we couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out."
Cannon said many county residents have been frustrated with the inability to contact certain offices or officials. The site lists contact info for all six county magistrates along with photos and also includes direct links to any office or organization's individual website.
A push for the new website was also made by County Clerk Kevin Alexander.
"As a county official, I'm excited to see this new site and am very pleased with the work done by Studio DD," said Alexander. "Having centralized information is beneficial to everyone, and I think it's great. I'm glad our fiscal court took the bold move by having this done."
Again, the new site address is edmonsoncounty.org.
