New Website Makes Interacting with the Local Government Easier

Follow Garrett Wymer on Facebook and Twitter.

STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV)-- Staunton's new "maps and apps" website is designed to be a one-stop shop for interacting with the local government.

The site replaces the city's old "geographic information systems" or GIS website.

"Maps and Apps" pulls information that used to be found in several places all onto one website. Information like crime maps, city schools and trash pickup. You can also pay your utility bills online, and it links to state and federal government info, voter information, election results and Census Bureau statistics.

Staunton GIS coordinator John Brady says the new site is a great tool to get more people involved in their government at the local level, "Hopefully it's a place you can come to instantly and not have to fumble around on multiple websites, multiple web pages to find what you're looking for."
