Last week, we had the pleasure of launching Crawford County, Iowa’s new website. We are thrilled to have provided the county, its residents, and its visitors with an upgraded, redesigned, and now mobile-friendly experience.

To meet the county’s needs, we worked closely with their Director of Information Technology, Jacob Langholz, and the county’s IT Committee. Jacob and the committee shared their vision for the new site as well as challenges with the previous one. The site was 10 years old and lacked a cohesive design between department pages. During weekly meetings, we collaborated and honed in on what upgrades would make the site more efficient and user-friendly.

Brian and his team came into the project and raised the bar. Any request we made his team was on top of and a lot of times had already anticipated it.

To bring the new site together and unified in design and purpose, we met one on one with each county department to better understand their needs and what content they needed to keep or update, and any new features they needed to better serve county residents. As a result, the website is now consistent in design on every department page while allowing each department to easily communicate their unique services and duties to the public.

Custom modules were built for the Secondary Road Department for bridge data and section corner certificates.

I found Brian and his staff to be very knowledgeable of both the web page buildout process and the needs of our department. They listened to us, learned about us, and tailored a product that met or exceeded our expectations.

New website features include copies of board meeting agendas and minutes to keep the public informed, elected official lists for convenience, upcoming election details with sample ballots and voting locations, an FAQ for quick and helpful answers, and a county history to learn more about Crawford’s cities, courthouse, and forgotten towns. The redesign includes a dynamic homepage displaying news and announcements, the latest Board of Supervisors meeting details, a calendar of events, and quick links to timely and popular pages like absentee voting, paying property taxes, and renewing vehicle tags.

We are so pleased to have assisted Crawford County in their efforts to better communicate with the public and hope the website provides its residents and visitors with quick access to the information they need.

Neapolitan Labs was awesome to work with. They designed our County website into something that was even bigger and better than we could have imagined.
