City and non-profit organizations, committees and departments provide a range of services to the community and should be listed in this section. All services should have a common organization and structure plus any unique or notable information. Blank pages/elements would exist but would not be published (would not be visible without logging in to the CMS). Assume all services listed below use the Generic Service Template. Only information unique to that service is listed individually in this draft site map (the site map on the CMS would have all the sections for each service).

Generic Service

  • Paragraph explaining the service with link to “more information about this service.”

Need to decide what calendar(s) there will be. Community, definitely. There could also be ones for individual services, committees, etc. i.e. Clinic, GVFD (already requested), City Hall, Library meeting room. Maybe there is an application that allows combining calendars, tagging events, and filtering views.
