Welcome to the website for the Village of Algonquin!
Algonquin Launches New, Mobile-Friendly Website
The Village of Algonquin is pleased to announce the launch of its redesigned website www.algonquin.org. The new website features a mobile-friendly design that allows users to easily navigate through the site on their preferred device, be it a smart phone, tablet or desktop computer, and is compliant with all federal accessibility requirements.
"Our website is an important tool in our efforts to communicate with the community," said Village President John Schmitt. "This redesign allows us to better organize and present information, creating a more transparent village government."
The new site was developed with user-ease and services in mind, supported by analytics on user behavior when visiting www.algonquin.org. Popular content on the Village’s website include: online payments, service requests, recreation program registration, and information on Village services, all of which are prominently featured on the new website. Additionally, a simpler navigation designed specifically for smart phone and tablet users is presented in a more visually-appealing format.
“The content of the new Village website is based on the needs of residents and other visitors,” said Schmitt. “It is organized by topic and provides multiple ways for people to find what they need in a convenient manner.”
Algonquin’s new website is also intended to make everything the Village does even more transparent for the public. In addition to news and service information, Algonquin has posted several electronic documents from all of its operating areas – from budgets to permit forms to construction information. It all is part of the Algonquin Village Board’s goal of providing as much information on Village operations as possible.
The Village partnered with eGov Strategies, its content management system provider, to revamp its previous site which was launched in 2011. Comments and feedback regarding the new website may be submitted to the Village using the online chat feature located at the bottom of www.algonquin.org.
