Mohave County has updated its website. Information Technology Director Nathan McDaniel said the upgrade implemented April 22 was overdue.

“It had been five or six years since we had any major version change of our website,” McDaniel said. He said the new design enhances citizen ability to access the site through use of personal electronic devices.

“The number one design goal was to simplify navigation,” McDaniel said. “We want people to be able to conduct county business through the county website using a smart phone if necessary.”

McDaniel said he’s please his staff could handle the site upgrade in-house.

“It bothers me to bring people in,” McDaniel said. “That’s opposite of what we should be doing. We’re here to do a job instead of outsource it and manage the contract.”
