Calvert County unveils new website design

News Release, Calvert County Public Information Office

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – June 20, 2019 – Anyone can connect with Calvert County Government information and services at home or on the go with the redesigned Calvert County Government website

The new mobile-friendly design features improved navigation and usability, a simplified design and easy access to frequently visited pages. Much of the site organization remains the same, so it will feel familiar to those who have used the previous site. The redesign makes the site easier to use on mobile devices, such as a smartphone or tablet, and sports a fresh look that makes the county’s most visited tools and information easier to find.

“It is imperative that citizens have the ability to access county government services and information quickly and with ease,” said Calvert County Board of County Commissioners President Thomas “Tim” Hutchins. “The newly redesigned website provides all users an attractive new interface, greater visibility of government functions and will help continue to keep our community engaged and informed.”

Site visitors will find major sections on government, departments, resources for residents and resources for businesses. The site features a “How Do I?” section that provides quick access to various applications, online payments, registrations, public information and volunteer opportunities. The design also ties together the county’s agriculture, animal shelter, economic development and tourism websites with buttons linking each site to the homepage.

The site design was determined using feedback from county staff, citizen responses to a survey conducted earlier this year and data analysis of site use.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
