Municipality brags with new interactive website

2015-11-26 06:00

At a touch of a button residents from Nelson Mandela Bay may now, through a brand-new interactive website, gain information regarding services, wards, councillors and payments.

After initial registration, visitors will receive a personal welcome when logging into the portal, and also get personalised information regarding accounts, their ward councillors and a detailed ward map among other facilities.

Municipal Webmaster, Didi van Heerden said although a website is never complete but considered it a “living tool” since it can and must always be improved on.

“The information has been repackaged in smaller chunks and re-categorised for ease of consumption. Navigation is more compact, easy to use and accessible on all pages.

“Incorporating responsive web design techniques, the new NMBM website can adjust to suit display sizes on any device such as cell phones, tablets and desktops,” Van Heerden said.

Residents are encouraged to browse the website at and take a few minutes to provide feedback that could enable the webmaster to make even greater improvements by clicking on the feedback icon.

The new interactive communication experience comes at a time when Dr Danny Jordaan, Executive Mayor of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality made it clear that the institution must connect better with its core constituency, the residents.
