The city of Wichita’s website has a new look after a facelift that debuted Monday.

The website, www.wichita.gov, uses software that replaces a system that had been used since 2001, a news release from the city said.

A federal grant that required $30,000 in matching funds paid for the revamped website. The upgrade began in September after meetings with focus groups that included residents and business owners.

The city hopes the redesigned site will be more user-friendly.

“It was very important to us that the new site be built from the view of site customers including residents, employees and other stakeholders,” chief information officer Mike Mayta said in the news release. “It’s a completely revamped look and feel,” he said, “but we think they will soon find the site more user-friendly than the old one.”

Sedgwick County also recently revamped its website, www.sedgwickcounty.org.
