The website was introduced at the February City Council meeting by Michael L. Holton, Plainview City Administrator, and Carrie Pitzer, owner of Pitzer Digital, LLC. Pitzer designed and developed the website and mobile version for the City of Plainview.
While more information will be added to the website during the next several months, the new website already offers much of the information needed by residents, as well as those considering a move to the Pierce County community. There's a link called "What Do I Go For" that answers questions new residents may have about Plainview.
Among the content on the website is contact information for city boards, clubs and organizations, as well as dates for festivals, swimming pool hours and fees, forms and permit applications and a city calendar of events.
The homepage features a scrolling news feed that will be utilized in emergency situations, including for snow or water emergencies. There are also links to weather, road conditions and community links, such as Plainview Public School and Carnegie Library. Photos on the City of Plainview website were provided by The Plainview News.
Among the additions to the website in the coming months will be online bill pay.
