A new St. Clair city website is still in the works with a new launch date for this spring.

During the Oct. 2 board of aldermen meeting, City Administrator Travis Dierker announced that he is working with REVIZE, a design company that specializes in government websites, to update and modernize the city of St. Clair’s website.

The new website will give city employees the chance to upload and update meeting agendas, newsletters, job applications and other information easier. Dierker will also be able to share news faster, he said.

For community members, the new website will be user-friendly. Some website features include, online bill pay, a community calendar, links to social media platforms, a citizen request center and more.

The city’s website will be separate from the Chamber of Commerce’s, which are currently linked together.

“I was hoping to have it launched at the beginning of the year, but it took the company a little bit longer to get their side of things ready to go,” Dierker told The Missourian.

He said the transferring of information from the old website and new one took was also a time-consuming factor. Staff have been trained on the new website and minor tweaks are still being made.

“We want to try and have all the kinks worked out ahead of time,” Dierker said.

The new website will go live in mid-April, according to Dierker.
