Marceline launches new website!


Marceline, MO  On the heels of moving forward into the world of social networking last week, the City of Marceline is proud to announce the launch of its new website located at its same address at  These actions reinforce the City's goal of complete transparency and increased interaction with the public and contains valuable resources for the public who seek information about the City or the surrounding areas - not just in Marceline, but in the Linn and Chariton County area.


"The City of Marceline is excited about the roll-out of the new website and Facebook page in an effort by City Manager Rich Hoon to improve overall communication throughout our community," said Mayor Jacob Gordon.


"Communication with the City's citizens, businesses, and visitors is critical for encouraging understanding of the value of living and working in the City and surrounding community," said City Manager Richard Hoon.  "Public engagement and communication plays a vital role in the overall health and well-being of the community."


The design of the site is completely new, dressed in black and gold, and includes important communication tools such as a Citizen Action Form and email sign up list.  To ensure a business-friendly environment, and understanding that many City organizations and businesses have limited resources to promote public activities that have far-reaching benefit to City residents and visitors, the website also features a community calendar and City events page, providing the event is open to the public.


The structure of the website can be easily changed to expand or adding different features in the future.  Several of the pages are still under construction such as the Parks & Recreation and City Project pages.
