Website redesign, alcohol license for Hampton Inn on Decatur City Commission agenda
UPDATE: The City Commission approved the contract for redesigning the city’s website and the alcohol license for the new Hampton Inn. Here is our earlier story …
The Decatur City Commission at its regular meeting on Feb. 4 will consider a contract for redesigning the city’s website and an alcohol license for the new Hampton Inn in downtown Decatur.
City Commissioners are considering awarding a $54,000 contract to Municode to redesign the city’s website.
The website will be “a new, user-centric, structured website with a useful search engine and a new content management system.”
“The City of Decatur created its first website over 20 years ago and completed its last re-design in 2010,” a memo from City Manager Andrea Arnold says. “Over the years we have added a tremendous amount of information to the site. The website continues to be one of our key communication tools with an average of 3,960 page views a day. While our website contains plenty of information, it is not organized in a way that is intuitive and focused on how users receive information today. The technology used in 2010 has changed dramatically so that in order to meet the needs of our users, we must create a new foundation with the capability to expand and add to the site effectively for the next three to five years.”
The alcohol license is for Aman Patel, Vision Fund 1, LLC, doing business as the new Hampton Inn and Suites at 116 Clairemont Avenue. The license allows for the sale of beer, wine and liquor.
The projected opening date for the 132-room hotel is March, with a grand opening in June.
The City Commission meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will be held at City Hall, located at 509 North McDonough Street in Decatur. All meetings are open to the public.
