Navigation/Organization of Website
Persistent navigation and logical organization makes it easy to navigate and find the information you're looking for in our website. Let's take a closer look:
  1. You will always know what section of our website you're in by the label in the secondary menu.
  2. The primary menu (always present at the top of the page) divides our website into six main categories: Government, Departments, Economic Development, Community, Front Desk, and Contact Us..
  3. The secondary menu will change depending on what section of the website you're in.
  4. Larger sections of our website (i.e., Services and Departments), will have tertiary-level menus (and sometimes even quad-level menus). Menus within sections are always present on the page.
  5. Search the website here. Or for advanced search functionality, visit our Search page (also available by clicking on Front Desk, then Search.
  6. Quick Links brings commonly viewed pages to your fingertips.
  7. The Event Calendar is available on every page. The complete calendar with links to documentation is available by clicking the words "Event Calendar".
More on Tertiary Menus
Larger sections of our website (i.e., Services and Departments), will have tertiary-level menus. If you see + in a tertiary menu, it means there is another "section" of information, not just a single page of information.

When we think our visitors would want to print the information we are presenting in our website, we make it available in Adobe format (.pdf), indicated by this symbol:
  • If you are having problems viewing .pdf documents, please download the free Acrobat Reader here.
  • To print a .pdf document, left click on the link, then click on the printer icon, or click on File/Print.
  • To print information on a page in our website where a .pdf is not available (just a regular page), highlight what you want printed, click on File/Print, then select "Selection" under Print Range. This way all the graphics (buttons along the top and left side) will not print.
  • To download a .pdf file to your computer's hard drive, left click on the link, then click on the save icon (looks like a disk). Enter the filename and click Save. You can also right click, then "Save Target As" (Internet Explorer) or "Save Link As" (Netscape).

    Enter the filename and click Save. (Note that the above outlined options may not be available on older browsers.)
Technical Stuff
We've optimized our imagery as much as possible without affecting the quality of the graphics. This minimizes slow download times. In addition, graphics are also sliced optimally to minimize slow download times.

Some services in our website open new browser windows on your computer. Unfortunately, this technology is similar to the approach used for those annoying pop-up and pop-under advertisements.

If you have pop-up blocker software on your computer, this content may not be displayed. To work around this problem, simply suspend the operation on the pop-up blocker software, open the page, then re-engage your pop-up blocker software.
