New city website gets modern look miami The updated City of Chilliwack website went live Tuesday with a fresh, sleek look. The new web design for www. chilliwack.com was presented to council for information by Erik Leidekker, manager of information technology at the city. “It’s very modern-looking with all the functionality one would expect,” he said during his report. On the home page, a slide show of photos on a five-second loop accompanies the big issues impacting the city. Right now the grand opening of the Sardis

t ou b ka r s A ou

library on June 26 is featured in those notifications, along with Bike to Work week (May 20 to June 2) and details about flood protection in the context of the Fraser River freshet. All the major categories have easy to navigate drop-down menus, and a tab called “I want” leads to a range of services offered from contacting the mayor’s office to getting a business licence. Leidekker presented the city’s new mapping section online, with a range of layers and data, which he described as a “research tool”

department, while also acknowledging that he would prefer that no one made a fuss.

“You really care about public safety in our community, and I want to say a huge, huge thank you,” she said. Ryall filed a first-quarter fire report for the City of Chilliwack Fire Department for January to March 2013. A total of 479 calls of various kinds were logged in that three-month period, which is the lowest first quarter total in the past six years. Last year’s first quarter total was 552 calls. There were 69 fires in the first quarter including 23 residential structure fires and 21 vehicle fires, costing about $910,000, with injuries to 13 people. jfeinberg@theprogress.com Twitter.com/chwkjourno
