Councillor John Orlikow Launches Redesigned Website - More City Hall Updates and Community Information Now Available for River Heights-Fort Garry Ward

June 03, 2015

John Orlikow, City Councillor for River Heights-Fort Garry, is encouraging residents in his ward to visit the newly redesigned for everything they need to know about what’s happening in the ward, its individual communities and decisions and issues at City Hall.

“Listening to the feedback I’ve received over the years from those who consider our site an important hub of information, I decided to make changes to improve the experience people have when they use it,” Coun. Orlikow explained. “Making access to information as accessible and easy as possible has always and will continue to a goal of mine.”

“I’ve always thought of the website as belonging to the community members in our ward because it’s there to serve them and allow me to keep them better informed about the decisions we make at City Hall every day. With this new version, I’ve aimed to make it even easier for that to happen.”

The streamlined site continues to provide the rich content and unique individual community coverage that constituents have received in the past but now features intuitive navigation, distinct categories for news, events, FAQ and more as well as a variety of filters to ensure visitors can quickly find all the information they need.

“Since I was first elected, I have always made it a priority to connect with residents and make sure they’re aware of what is happening around them and on their behalf,” Coun. Orlikow said.

“Through the many channels we have available – from our neighbourhood bulletins and social media to this revamped website – I will always keep River Heights-Fort Garry informed.”
