Hawaii County Department of Public Works Starts Blogging

Well no one will admit this at the Department of Public Works… but the Hawaii County Department of Public Works has started blogging.

I know they don’t like the sound of that… but that’s what these sites are is just basically blogs:

From the Mayor’s Office:

The Department of Public Works has launched two redesigned websites for Flood Awareness, Education and Roadwork information at  http://dpw.co.hawaii.hi.us/flood/ and http://dpw.co.hawaii.hi.us/traffic/.

The new design incorporates improved navigation, enhanced functionality, and addresses Americans with Disability Act (ADA) accessibility requirements to make the site easier to use by first-time visitors and those with disabilities, as well as being easier and more cost effective to maintain.

The new websites:

  • Improve access to report broken street lights, faded road markings, etc.
  • Provides links in the navigation menu to additional sources of information.
  • Alerts and updates citizens of any road and bridge work through RSS feeds.
  • Advises residents about flood hazards, insurance and protection.

In the coming months, an additional enhancement will include virtual brochures, and ordering and paying for safety educational products online through the Roadwork website.

I find the irony in this hilarious considering the Department of Public Works and Noelani Whittington herself tried to Blacklist Bloggers:
