Questions about the new jocogov.org

Why build a new website?

Johnson County Government began building a new website in fall of 2020 to provide the community a better online experience. The overall goal is to make it easier for our customers to do business with us by providing a web experience that is engaging, intuitive and successful. The new site will feature improvements such as clearer navigation, content that is easier to find and use, a significantly better search tool and enhanced monitoring/response to suspicious cyber activity.

How old was your previous website?

While we launched our organization’s first website in the early 2000s, the most recent version of the site was launched in 2014. It is recommended that websites be redesigned about every 3 years, so it was time.

Why doesn’t the site work well in Internet Explorer?

The new jocogov.org website was built/optimized for Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Apple’s Safari and Mozilla Firefox internet browsers. For those who use Internet Explorer, the website won’t perform as intended. IE is an outdated browser and is no longer supported by Microsoft. We suggest viewing the new jocogov.org in Edge, Chrome, Safari or Firefox.
