The Borough of Media has been awarded First Place in the 2012 PA Borough News Annual Municipal Web Site Contest. This award recognizes boroughs that develop web sites that serve residents, visitors and businesses through quality design.
Media Borough's web site was implemented in September 2011. The new site is structured to meet the needs of residents, visitors, businesses, and departments. Compared to the old site, it has many features that improve upon navigation, a much nicer look and feel, and an ability to make changes much more easily. The Master Calendar contains events for all departments, boards and commissions. It also allows staff to quickly add and edit new content, which saves time and money. It is easier for residents and businesses to connect with the Borough, to promote transparency in government, and to provide helpful information for visitors.
This project was the result of work by Council members Monica Simpson and Eric W. Stein, and Kent Davidson (serving as a volunteer). Borough manager Jeff Smith and his staff worked hard to make the transition to the new architecture. The effort also received input from representatives of the MBA, the EAC, and other external groups.
The new site is much improved over the previous one, providing residents, businesses, visitors, and others with valuable, and easy to access, information about the Media community and government.
