The Town of Orangetown is in Rockland County, NY with a population about 50,000.
The town went live with the Webmuni Framework in December, 2016.
The site is using the Genesis StudioPress framework, and has many features such as custom post types for documents and people, rotating banner, and dynamic content gallery.
There are much custom programming built into the site, including an alert system, online surveys for crowd sourcing, etc. The final product is a framework to support local government work for a content rich site.
The mobile version of the site focuses content to optimize those on-the-go, with the phone, email contact or online map one quick away, and the calendar front and center.
Upper Nyack is a small Village with basic municipal requirements but still needed an elegant content management system for its documents and events.
FSI’s WP-MUNI framework based on WordPress/Genesis was a perfect low cost solution.
Residents can quickly find when their next meeting is or any minutes/agendas they need, or information on departments, boards and committees.
