Johnson County Government launches rebuilt website
Johnson County Government has launched a new version of its website at the same web address: jocogov.org. The site transitioned from the old to new version the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 30. The new jocogov.org was completely rebuilt using feedback from the community. Improvements include content that is easier to use, resident-focused navigation and an improved search tool.
“Our new website will make it easier for the community to do business with the county, minimizing the time it takes visitors to find what they are looking for,” said Chairman Ed Eilert, Johnson County Board of County Commissioners. “The new site has improved ADA accessibility and works better on mobile devices compared to our previous website. It was designed with feedback from the community and should provide a more successful online experience.”
In March 2020, the Board of County Commissioners authorized a contract with Interpersonal Frequency, a web solution provider with expertise in building sites for governmental organizations, to build and host the new site. Two days later, Johnson County had its first reported case of COVID-19. The project was paused that spring, and the county restarted the project in October 2020.
At the top of the home page of the new jocogov.org, visitors will be able to access a feedback form to alert county web staff of any issues they encounter or share their thoughts on the new site.
