Kmarks Web Design and Development


As a downtown business Kmarks Web & Computer Solutions was selected to re-design the city’s website.

Our first goal was to properly register the city with an official government domain.  WETUMPKA was registered on a .com site. .GOV domains are top-level domain (TLD) that was established to make it easy to identify US- based government organizations on the internet

Secondly, the city needed a fresh up to date mobile friendly design that supported all devices.  As required by government sites, it needed to be 508 compliant for user with disabilities. The city leadership required alerts for emergency notices and council member meeting notifications and agendas.  

Finally, it was important for resident to be notified of upcoming events, resource, and job opportunities; as well as giving visitor a place to find all the local things to do.


We were successful in developing a government website that is consistent, accessible, and current. Some of the most important elements of our accomplishment was:

  • Usability: Address the public’s needs
  • Design: Emphasize simplicity, while keeping it engaging
  • Development: Ensure accessibility, mobility, and quickness

Features that Set Websites Apart:

  • Data delivery: Intelligent, designed focus
  • Navigation: Simple, purpose-driven and intuitive
  • Media: Eye-catching and consistent with the content
  • Information sharing: Integrative and shareable
