If you had to use one word to describe the Town of Westport’s website, what would it be?
Mine is “utilitarian.”
For one thing, it’s a town site. It’s not supposed to be exciting.
For another, it was last redesigned in 2011. In technology terms, that was when fish first crawled out of the sea.
But the site is being upgraded soon. It will be coded for use on those newfangled smartphones and tablets, as well as desktops and laptops.
And the designers want us to help.
Users can offer feedback on how they use the current site — and what they’d like to see in the future — by answering a quick survey. The basic questions are kind of blah, but the opportunity to expand on your answers at length is a good one.
Click here for the survey. Your town government wants to hear from you!
(My 2 cents: Get rid of that tagline “New England in tradition; cosmopolitan in outlook.” Yikes!)
