KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Knox County residents and visitors have new ways to get information about government services.

A new design for the county's website was announced Monday. Knox County officials also announced an iPhone app has been released.

Along with the new information services, the county says Wi-Fi is now available in the City County Building.

The updated design for the website was developed by the Knox County Information Technology Department. It features a responsive user interface to display content well, regardless of the type of device being used.

Knox County officials say the site's bold colors provide a cleaner look and make it easier for visitors to navigate.

An "Ask Rene" section allows users to ask or search for services.

The site also features links to social media, contact information and interactive maps.

The Knox County Find It app is another project of the county's IT department. It is available as a free download for iOS devices. An Android version may be released in the future.

Using an interactive map, citizens can find county services closest to their current location.

Wi-Fi services have been expanded in the City County Building to provide better wireless access to the community, media, judges, attorneys and staff.

The improved public Internet access is available in courtrooms, on the main and first floors.

Public Wi-Fi access is also available in the Main and Small Assembly Rooms.
