New Orleans Gets New Web Domain, Redesign
Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

Mayor Mitch Landrieu announced the launch of a newly redesigned Web site for the City of New Orleans including a new web address: The redesigned Web site is easier to navigate, provides a wealth of information and is more user-friendly.

“This new website will go a long way in improving residents’ accessibility to information and transparency at City Hall,” said Landrieu. “Everyone who knows and loves New Orleans knows that was not a fitting web address for our town so I’m glad to be changing that too.”

On, web pages most visited and most requested by users will be promoted to the home page including information about the City’s capital and recovery projects, public notices, and a revamped phone directory. Mayor Landrieu also unveiled new social media pages for the City, including Facebook and Twitter profiles.

“This site is a work in progress, but it is certainly a step in the right direction for our city,” said Chief Information Officer Allen L. Square, Jr. “Our team is dedicated to increasing the availability of information to improve decision making for city employees as well as for the citizens of New Orleans.”

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
