Before Walla Wallans pay us a visit, send us an email, or give us a call, they will often look online. Our website has become a round-the-clock civil servant and the face of our municipal government.

No other mode of communication that we employ has greater power to connect community members with their government.

To keep up with our community’s evolving needs, we’ve launched this new website. This three-year process marks a big leap forward in our service to you.

Please, take it for a spin, then give us some feedback.

Nowadays, about 60% of our website visitors are browsing on their phones. The new website is fully responsive – meaning, regardless of the kind or the size of your device you have now or will have in the future, you’ll be able to access every feature.

Online security is a growing concern for everybody. The number of utility bill payments made on the website have doubled in the last five years. When our customers pay utility bills, or simply visit our site, they trust that it’s safe. The new site’s increased security protects that trust.

Disabled website visitors will find it easier to navigate. The content and design meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines set forth by the World Wide Web Consortium.  

As long as you can get cell service, you can look to our website for information during any disaster. Redundant hosting allows our website to “live” in two geographically separate locations.

Those are a few of the bigger things under the hood. We hope you think the finish looks pretty good, too. Our goal was not only to create an award-winning website, but to create one that reflects Walla Walla.

Technology advances at a dizzying pace. This new site provides a firm foundation on which we’ll be able to make a number of improvements to our online services. We’re working to meet your expectations.

We welcome your ideas, comments, and suggestions. It’s your government. Let us know how we can make it better.

– Communications Manager David Brauhn
