The New SouthElgin.com
The best way to acclimate to a new website is simply to click around and explore. While you're doing so, here are a few things to know:
This is a new site. It's not a finished site. We're continuing to add content and features while the site is live and accessible. Please let us know if you find a link that isn't working or you can't find the content you seek. Please send a message to email@example.com. The site you explore in mid-November will be significantly improved upon over the coming months!
A Few New Features:
Urgent News Alert. When you click on southelgin.com, an important news box becomes visible in the lower right corner of your screen and will share information about weather emergencies, traffic alerts, upcoming deadlines and other topics requiring your immediate attention. The previous version of our website did not offer this level of fine-tuned customization.
Quick Access to Most Common Inquiries: The drop down menus along the top of the website remain visible and accessible regardless of how far down you scroll. The I Want To tab provides speedy access to some of the most frequently referenced topics on the site.
Report a Concern. Scroll midway down the homepage, and you'll find a box called Report A Concern. You can scroll down and select from a list of issues and topics (or choose Other), and send a message directly to the Village.
"Share This" Social Media Flyout App. See something on the calendar or news page you want to share with friends/family? Simply click on the Share button along the right edge of the page, and post it to your social media page!
Built-in ADA Compliance and Improved Accessibility Features. The responsive website design automatically adjusts to any screen size - from giant desktop monitors to phones to tablets. Need to enlarge the text size? Click on the wheelchair icon along the left side of the screen to enlarge or reduce text size.
