The City of Canton's New Web Site

Canton, Ohio Established 1805

On December 10, 2019, the City of Canton has switched to a new Web Site.

The old Content Management System (CMS) that the City had been using was a heck of a work horse for over 11 years, it was written in-house by the City's programmers in the Information Technology (IT) Department.

The old CMS cannot be scrapped yet, as there are still a number of applications that can't run on the new Web Site. So the old CMS will still be running, under a new CantonOhio.gov sub-domain, to serve up those active applications.

As the programming staff has been dwindling in recent years it is difficult for the programmers to keep up with updates such as a front-end re-design that would be mobile device friendly, and in this increasingly mobile world it was becoming more important to address that issue.

The City has contracted with CivicPlus to design and host the new Web Site. They have many local government web sites that they host, and Canton is now counted among those.

Feel free to peruse the new Web Site, in the first days, and weeks, we will still be making the Web Site better. If you see any wrong information, or any other errors, on the Web Site, please inform us at the City's "Webmaster" email account: webmaster@cantonohio.gov, so that we may more quickly address it.

We are confident that as time goes on, the new Web Site will be at least as endearing to Canton's citizens as the old web site was.
