RE: Deep River CT Town Clerk content [ ref:00D3aql.5004I8DWb:ref ]
Hi Miriam,
1- Yes, please delete all text below the links, including in the blue
box.

2- I think I like the Cash,Check only banner right below the hours and
above the links box, even if it can't be bolded. I do like all the <<<<<
>>>>>>>>> surrounding it.  I'm afraid people will miss it if it's below
the links.

I'm sure I'll be sending more. I hope your head is not spinning with all
I've sent so far today. :)

HI Amy,

I changed your name and deleted the "banners" below the additional links

1) Would you like me to delete the text in the blue box?

2) I'm not sure we can make the text about "Cash, Check only..." in bold
without making all the rest of  the Additional Links bold.  I'm looking
into it. If all the links would have to be bold, shall we go back to the
"banner" message below Additional LInks?

3) There are 18 links in the center Additional Links area.  If you run
out of room, you can always combine topics - I can hel you do that
depending on what new topics you'd want to add.

Regards,

Miriam

Thanks Miriam. We're getting there. I like the payment notice right
under the hours even though it has to be in that blue box. The print
will be in black, though, and not gray, right? Can it be bold print?

How many links can I have? I agree about removing Boards and Commissions
and Minutes and Agendas but I was trying to keep it divisible by 3.

Also, I'd like to have my whole name spelled out: Amy Macmillan Winchell

There's a large blue text box under the links box with my old blurb from
our old website. Will that be staying?

Hi again Amy!

OK - we're making progress!
here is the page so far-

1) First off, I've given you a couple of options for the Payments info.
The info under"hours" has to be in that blue band.

If you don't like it there, you can see that I put it under the links -
it can be in black or any color.  It can also be in a "billboard" form

2) Regarding you list of links - looks good to me.  The links will
appear in the "box form" so your list would start at the left and go
left to right. then down to the next line - left to right etc

My only suggestion would be that you could delete "Minutes & Agendas"
and Boards & Committees" because there will be major navigational links
for both those topics (along the top and on the left of each page).  You
might like having some free links anyway.

Regards!

Miriam

OK, let's try it your way. :)

Please remove everything below the Additional links box.

Above the box and below "Hours" please put the line "Please note: Only
payment by cash, check, or money order is accepted." in bold print.

The following is a complete list of Additional links in the wording and
order I prefer:

Downloadable Forms
Land Records
Dog Licenses
Hunting & Fishing Licenses
Marriage Licenses
Vital Certificates: Birth, Death & Marriage Notary Public Voting,
Elections & Referenda Parking & Transfer Station Permits Minutes &
Agendas Boards & Commissions Boards & Commissions Volunteer Form
Military Discharges Genealogy Ordinances Passports Freedom of
Information Act Connecticut General Statutes

Do you think that's too many links? They'll have to scroll down a little
but I put the most common subjects at the top of the list. A lot of
these links are already available on our current website. Can you
migrate them or do I have to send you each one?

Thanks! Another day, a little closer...

Hi

I replaced the info with your attachment, so here is how the page looks
now http://deepriverct.vt-s.net/Pages/DeepRiverCT_Clerk/index

The links go to another town's website....does that town handle those
topics for you? Or do you want to copy the info from those pages?

I will of course make the page any way you'd like.  Based on past
experience of building sites, I have noticed that the method you have
chosen (duplicating the center links as links in the bottom of the page)
in rare. I think the reason is to minimize confusion and to give people
one place to go to obtain info on any given page.

From our end, we usually recommend that the space below the links be
"rather short to avoid having to scroll too much (same suggestion
applies to all pages).

Just some food for thought!

(Please let me know about the links to the outside site- thanks!)

Miriam

Thanks Miriam. I agree but I'm a little confused. I thought all those
links were already in Additional links, except for the few I asked you
to add. The text I sent was supposed to go underneath the Additional
links box in case anyone did want a summary of what our office does
without having to jump around with links. Is it OK to have the same
links in both the Additional links box and within the text? That's how
Newtown has theirs and I really liked it. I just checked our prototype
and I want everything under the Additional links box to be replaced with
the attached document. Are we on the same page?

Hi Amy,

I would recommend making each one of those topics into it's own
"Additional Link."  This will make your page MUCH easier to navigate,
enabling people to go directly to their topic of interest, instead of
having to read through a long document.  

My fear is that people will not take the time to read the page as it is
now, and will simply call you for answers to their question -- and that
is exactly what you are trying to avoid my making a comprehensive web
page!

What do you think?

Thanks!

Miriam

I have attached the revised content for the Town Clerks page to replace
what is currently under the Additional Links box.


Also, please remove the Charter link, change Boards and Committees to
Boards and Commissions (2 places), change Business Certificate to Trade
Name Certificate, and add the following link categories:


Land Records Index

Parking and Transfer Station Permits

Notary Public

Justices of the Peace

Elections and Referendums

Veterans Discharge Papers

Freedom of Information Act
