The Town of Occoquan’s website got a makeover.

A new, blue website full of information about the town, how to apply to for business permit, and details on the town’s ever-popular spring and fall craft shows, replaced an older website dating back 10 years.

Here’s what Occoquan Mayor Earnie Porta had to say about the new site:

I am pleased to announce that the Town has gone live with a new official town web site.  This new site replaces a legacy site more than ten years old that was both difficult to update and suffered from a variety of inconsistencies. 

Our new site project substantively began last spring with the retention of the Computer Doctor to design the site, discussions of site requirements, and the gathering of updated town information. Among the attributes of the new site are: ease of updating by staff (a significant priority given financial and personnel resources), ease of navigation, more attractive and consistent layout, and expansion of available information. 

This last feature includes, among other things, agendas and minutes, as well as Arts and Crafts Show information.  There are a number of privately-owned Occoquan-related web sites out there, but the official town government web site can be viewed at the same address as in the past – occoquan.org

We are contemplating a photo contest to gather great new photos of the town to add at a later date  – so check out the new site and stay tuned!
