Information now available
on the World Wide Web Site on the Internet
SANTA ANA, CA - In
yet another effort to make information regarding County
government more accessible to citizens, Orange County
Board of Supervisors Chairman Gaddi Vasquez announced
that press releases, meeting agendas, and other information
will be available immediately on the World Wide Web (WWW)
site on the Internet.
The County's "Web site" is available at: http://www.oc.ca.gov
to any citizen with standard World Wide Web connections.
"The recent explosion of the Internet and increased
use of personal computers at home and in the office has
made "on-line" information a priority to serve
the public need for information," stated Chairman
The County is providing this service on a six month trial
basis, based on a cooperative business agreement with
Online ( a division of Maximized
Software, Inc.) and Network
Intensive (a division of Computer Intensive, Inc.).
This has allowed the County to provide this service at
no cost to the County. The County of Orange becomes one
of the first counties in California to provide governmental
information on the World Wide Web.
"In the future, we anticipate adding additional information
on budget and finance, bankruptcy information, and departmental
facts," Vasquez further indicated. The County will
be responsive to suggestions to the County's E-mail address:
OCCACOB@ix.netcom.com. The Internet and the World Wide
Web are such a new medium that its growth is an evolutionary
process and the County will evolve as it does. "
It is the County's hope that this expansion onto the Internet
will increase responsiveness and availability of county
government to its citizens," Vasquez stated.
