CITY BITS: Grand Forks seeking input on new website

Grand Forks is planning to debut a new city website in spring 2014 but wants residents to weigh in on what they want out of it.

Residents can give input through a series of surveys, which the city will provide links to its website.

The first, which is up now, asks residents about their current use of the website. You can take that survey here.

The City Council voted in September to budget $75,000 for the new website’s construction.
