Navigation/Organization of Website
navigation and logical organization makes it easy to
navigate and find the information you're looking for
in our website. Let's take a closer look:
1. The primary menu (always present at the
top of the page) divides our website into five main
categories: Government, Business, Community,
Services, and Reference Desk.
2. The secondary menu will change depending on
what section of the website you're in.
3. Larger sections of our website (i.e.,
Services), will have tertiary-level menus (and
sometimes even quad-level menus). Menus within
sections are always present on the page. If you see
in a tertiary menu, it means that particular menu
item is available in Adobe Acrobat .pdf format.
Clicking on it will open the .pdf document in a new
browser window. See more information on .pdf
4. Search the website here. Or for advanced
search functionality, visit our
Search page (also available by clicking on
Reference Desk, then Search.
5. Events Calendar is available on every page.
6. Each page is printer-friendly.
Click on the icon for just the information on the
page without the navigation.
When we think our visitors would want to print
the information we are presenting in our website, we
make it available in Adobe format (.pdf), indicated
by this symbol:

To print information on a page in our website
where a .pdf is not available (just a regular page),
click on the printer-friendly icon.
To download a .pdf file to your computer's hard
drive, left click on the link, then click on the
save icon (looks like a disk). Enter the
filename and click Save. You can also right
click, then "Save Target As" (Internet Explorer) or
"Save Link As" (Netscape). Enter the filename
and click Save.
(Note that the above outlined option may not
be available on older browsers.)
We've optimized our imagery as much as possible
without affecting the quality of the graphics.
This minimizes slow download times. In
addition, graphics are also sliced optimally to
minimize slow download times.
Our website is designed so that it can be viewed
as easily at 800x600 resolution as 1024x768.
No need to scroll left/right at the lower
resolution. If you have to scroll left/right
to see the entire page, your resolution is set too
low. To adjust your resolution, go to your
computer desktop, right click, go to Properties,
then select the "Settings" tab.
Some services in our website open new browser
windows on your computer. Unfortunately, this
technology is similar to the approach used for those
annoying pop-up and pop-under advertisements.
If you have pop-up blocker software on your
computer, this content may not be displayed.
To work around this problem, simply suspend the
operation on the pop-up blocker software, open the
page, then re-engage your pop-up blocker software.

accessible. Websites are accessible if they
can be used as effectively by people with
disabilities as by those without. A sighted
visitor will not even notice, though. The
steps taken to make a website accessible are "behind
