Collegeville Borough Issues RFP For Website Re-Design & Development
Our website’s number one objective is to inform, educate and engage those living in the Borough, or those considering moving here, and to provide information about the Borough to website visitors. The second objective is to inform website visitors of Borough news.
The Borough of Collegeville is in Montgomery County, PA and has approximately 5,100 residents. We have one full-time and two part-time employees in the Borough offices. We also have a police force and a volunteer fire department. The Borough has a seven-member Council and a Mayor as well as multiple commissions and committees, many of which will need to have a website presence.
Our current website, www.collegeville-pa.gov is 20 years old and has not been updated to keep up with current functionality demands or branding/design updates.
