City of Trail’s new website goes live

The City of Trail's newly redesigned website offers more than just a glance at municipal operations.

The City of Trail’s newly redesigned website offers more than just a glance at municipal operations, according to Andrea Jolly, Trail’s communications and events coordinator.

The site, designed by eSolutions Group out of Waterloo, Ont., went live Wednesday after six months of reconstruction.

“The new site has some great features that we are very excited about,” noted Jolly in a news release. “Business owners can sign up for the free online business directory, community event organizers can submit an event on the events calendar, residents can sign up for eNews and online payments for utilities, and property taxes are easy to access and simple to do.”

The easy-to-use modern site captures the city’s news notices, event listings and council agendas and minutes in a visually pleasing and interactive way that stretches far beyond its former archaic capabilities.

“The city’s old website was 10 years old,” Jolly added Thursday. “It lacked a fresh look, ease-of-use and modern technology, therefore it was time to upgrade.”

The redesign was a must after the city gathered public comments and suggestions through an online survey.

“Everyone’s comments were important to us when considering the new concept for the site,” added Jolly. “We will, however, continue to make improvements and keep the information current in order for the site to be the city’s information hub.”

To coincide with the launch, the city has a photo contest underway. Submissions can be added by visiting

Winning photos will be highlighted on the website or used for promotional print pieces in the future.
