Clark County got a much-needed upgrade to its website this week.

The county hasn’t had a significant upgrade to its website in 10 years, which means, by the way, that one of the websites I visit every single day has been pretty much the same since I was in middle school.


According to a county presentation, the upgrades replace a 15-year-old back end, improve the overall branding and look of the site, and resizes the for your phone or tablet screen (responsive design, for those among you who are semi-savvy in web design).

Hosting and security will cost the county about $17,000 annually.

Just in the last two days of exploring through the new website since it was introduced Thursday, I’ve found it to be a significant improvement on the old site. Make sure you check it out.
