RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PMC, a leading municipal services firm, is proud to announce that it has launched the newly designed website for the Fair Oaks Water District (FOWD). The updated website provides information, forms, news, and history to users, incorporates new navigation, and provides online bill pay. The database-driven content management system (CMS) will allow greater ability for staff to add, edit, and update content easily, while providing a framework that is scalable and adaptable as FOWD needs change over time.

"The FOWD website redesign was just one component of a larger modernization effort for the FOWD, so we had to approach this project with a view toward modernity and longevity," said Jacob Swift, Front-End Web Developer and Designer for PMC. "We had to acknowledge that more FOWD visitors are utilizing mobile devices and tablets, so we optimized the site for usability on a variety of platforms."

"PMC helped us to better inform our customers of current news, programs, and benefits that the FOWD provides through dedicated features on the new website," said Tom R. Gray, FOWD general manager. "We also can provide our customers better service through the availability of new service forms, online bill pay, and water efficiency program notices."

The new FOWD website features improved navigation and content that includes FAQs, information about water efficiency programs and initiatives, and a history of water in Fair Oaks. 

"Being a firm that specializes in working with municipalities and agencies, we have to approach our web design process with a view toward openness and accountability," said Swift. "For FOWD, we've incorporated a series of pages about FOWD staff, salaries, expenses, budgets, and board minutes."

The FOWD website redesign represents the latest successful website redesign PMC has developed for a California municipal agency. Over the years, PMC has developed a number of websites and online tools for local California governments and agencies which have improved the public's access to information and encouraged participation in local government.
