Long Beach launches new site allowing residents access to “24-hour city hall”

The city of Long Beach as unveiled a new city website that features neighborhood mapping, an open data portal and other features designed to make services more accessible to the public.

 

The website, www.longbeach.gov, is the first major overhaul of the city’s government portal since 2004.

 

Mayor Robert Garcia proposed a revamp of the city’s website in 2011, when he was a councilman. The City Council eventually approved $212,486 for the effort.

 

Residents will be able pay utility bills, apply for permits, watch city council meetings and see view calendars of city events on the new site. The site was developed to be mobile friendly.

“This is really a website of the future,” Mayor Robert Garcia told the Long Beach Press Telegram. “I think eventually, it is going to really become what it’s intended, which is a 24-hour online City Hall.”
