Whether you are visiting the site to search for tax information, view Board agendas, see pending zoning cases or pay property tax, the online services portal will guide you to the information you need. You can sign up for alerts, report problems, pay certain fines and fees online or apply for jobs this way. There are also handy searches accessible from the home page.
“This marks an important transition that we’ve been engaged in for several years,” said Board of Supervisors’ Chairman David Snider. “Rather than standing in line, we will try to serve you more conveniently online.”
The home page also received a makeover in terms of how you find information. You can still look up information by department from the left side of the page but information is grouped more intuitively. You don’t have to know that dog licenses come from a department called Animal Care & Control, you can click on “Pets” the site will display animal-related information.
“Every step we take to help folks access services or information from their homes or offices, the better we can serve people,” said District 1 Supervisor Pete Rios. “Some people like to come in and talk to a real person and that’s still available. As people get busier and as more people do business online, it makes sense for us to be accessible that way too.”
“I like that the search box is more prominent on the home page,” said District 2 Supervisor Clark Smithson. “That makes it easier for any of us to find what we need, even if we don’t know which department sponsors the service or program.”
New to the site is a scrolling display of featured topics in the upper center portion of the home page. These topics will change based on what’s hot or urgent at the time. The News & Information section will feature press releases and new videos from the county’s YouTube page. Look for continued refinements in the coming months. The main home page is www.pinalcountyaz.gov.
