Web Watch Nassau Clerk's Site Puts County on the 'Net

Nassau County Web Site

The Nassau County Web site I have been waiting for has finally arrived. Like many local governments across the nation, Nassau County has jumped onto the Web and in a big way. Thanks to the Nassau County Clerk of Courts and Webmaster Michael McClellan, Nassau County residents have a well-devised and informational Internet resource.

It's not uncommon to see developers of information-rich sites like this one fall short of the mark. Some sites look great, but visitors have difficulty finding information they seek. Other sites deliver resources well but lack a desirable look and feel. Regarding appearance, McClellan "set out to build a site that's eye-catching and professional at the same time." He also wanted to provide the public with "a one-stop site for resources." He succeeds on both counts. Consequently, instead of missing the mark, the Nassau County site hits the bull's-eye dead-center.

The sand-colored scheme is certainly appropriate for the Nassau County area, and it's rather pleasing to the eye. Relevant photos and a sprinkling of graphics enhance the site. And the directory on the left rail and presentation of additional links enable visitors to easily navigate around the site. The directory provides links to Geography and Demographics, County Government, Agendas and Minutes, Community, Education, Other County Sites and State Government.

The Nassau County Home Page also guides visitors to a section addressing Nassau County's Electronic Future and a link to frequently updated 2000 Hurricane Information.

The County Government pages are highly informative. Here you can view pictures of the county commissioners and read about current projects for each district. See what's new at the Clerk of Courts. Besides clicking Duties of the Clerk, Services, Job Postings, Phone Directory links, you can go to the Historic Nassau County Courthouse Renovation page.

Find Election Dates, Voting Locations, Absentee Ballots and more at the Supervisor of Elections area. …
