The site features easier navigation, enhanced resources, a “How Do I?” section, event calendars, as well as options for public interaction.

“The site was created with the user in mind, and was designed using the latest technology so that the website is compatible with today’s browsers and mobile devices,” said Deputy Economic Development Director Clay Wilfahrt. “With an increased use of smart phones, tablets and e-commerce, we had a lot of site visitors asking for services that were beyond our existing website’s capabilities.”

The launch of the new city website is part of the city’s ongoing efforts to enhance the quality and availability of information to the public, he said.

The website has also allowed some departments to have their own URLs to get directly to their pages within the city website. Elk River Arena is www.ElkRiverArena.com, Pinewood Golf Course is www.Pinewoodgolf.com, and Elk River Liquor Stores is www.ElkRiverLiquor.com.
