Dakota County launches new website

Dakota County’s new website launched Tuesday, Nov. 13, with an updated look. The new user-friendly site has a clean appearance that will allow Dakota County residents to quickly find the information they need.

The site has the ability to embed videos for promotional and information uses as well as maps from the Office of Geographic Information Systems and Google to make directing residents to county facilities easier. In addition, the new site allows residents to share information from Dakota County on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Two popular web destinations – Dakota County Parks and Dakota County Library – now have their own websites within the county’s site.

All of the work to create the updated site was done by Dakota County staff. The website was last updated in 2007 and gets more than 6 million monthly page views.

The Web address remains the same, www.dakotacounty.us.
