City Looks to Redesign Website

Seeking ideas and input from local South Lyon web developers with an interest and insight into helping redesign the City of South Lyon website. The site must be fully functional, allow compatibility with multiple Google calendars, allow for either the integration of transparency service products to permit live streaming of Council and Commission meetings or electronic packets with indexing to timestamps within the meetings for future viewings. Main site hosting must be able to provide multiple server farmer and cloud backup redundancy capability to prevent hacking and lack of availability due to cascade failure or power outage.
Depending on interest we would like to schedule a meeting of interested parties for early November to discuss a collaborative effort. Please contact City Manager Lynne Ladner at 248-437-1735 or lladner@southlyonmi.org   Response and interest will be taken until Friday, October 31, 2014.
