With the holiday season upon us, my team and I are celebrating the New Year by launching many new enhancements to our website. We have worked diligently over the past few months to redesign our website to make it easier to access the information that’s most important to you!

I hope you’ll take a few moments to dive into the changes we’ve made. Our new, mobile-friendly design enables you to access information from virtually any device. The new “How Do I” menu highlights some of the most requested features and services. We added accessibility controls to provide a seamless experience for everyone. Most importantly, we’ve improved the experience without impacting the search and data features you’ve come to trust.

A commitment to innovation is one of the core guiding principles of our office. I hope you enjoy the changes. We’d love to hear your feedback! Until next time, have a warm and prosperous holiday season!
