Committee chooses company to run Web site
Steamboat Springs — Help may be on the way for Routt County’s Web site, which has been plagued by dead-end and outdated links.
The group of county employees appointed to the Web Development Committee has found a locally owned company they would like to hire to redevelop the county’s Web site.
The committee was looking for a company that could host and maintain the site. A number of county departments also wanted the option of maintaining their own Web links.
The committee will ask the County Commissioners to hire Studio 9 Designs. The company is owned by Kathryn Antyr, who also teaches at Colorado Mountain College’s Alpine Campus.
Tax Assessor Amy Williams said the committee liked the fact Antyr teaches, which would make her an ideal person to train county employees.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
“Those of us who choose to maintain our own sites can do so,” Williams said.
Those departments likely to maintain their own records include the Assessor’s Office and Clerk and Recorder’s Office, both of which provide important information for taxpayers.
The county had received 15 requests for qualifications from Web developers. The committee narrowed the selection down to eight, then chose to interview three companies.
Those interviewed were RiderWeb, Studio 9 and Qwest.
RiderWeb was seen as too small of an operation while Qwest was seen as too big and costly.
Studio 9’s Web development sites include work for Strings in the Mountains, the Steamboat Springs School District, the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association and the Regional Affordable Living Foundation.
County Commissioners are expected to make a final decision on the county’s new Web developer today.
