Citizens Have New Access to County Data
County Assessor Steve Schleiker on Tuesday launched his office’s completely revamped website: El Paso County Community.
Schleiker presented the final tweaks to the redone internet portal at Tuesday’s Board of El Paso County Commissioners meeting, walking the board through a virtual tour that is also available to everyone visiting the site. One of the latest tweaks allows for election results to be readily available.
Clerk & Recorder Chuck Broerman gave his approval to the new format. “Assessor Schleiker and I have long shared the goal of increasing transparency in government,” Broerman said. “This new tool is a great step to fulfill that goal. The assessor’s leadership on this project has been outstanding. The community will enjoy this new tool and the information it will provide to our citizens.
Other features citizens, the business community and government officials will find on the site include a user-friendly map-based dashboard, easily accessible sales information for private and commercial property, census data and more.
“As soon as we’re done here we’re hitting the on switch for our citizens,” Schleiker said shortly after 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
The website can be accessed at http://community.spatialest.com/co/elpaso/ or by visiting the El Paso County website at www.elpasoco.com and following the link attached to the “El Paso County Community” banner at the top of the page.
The County Assessor’s website receives more than 37 million hits and almost 10,000 new visitors each year. Schleiker said he hopes the updated portal will provide a useful online toolset and help people better understand El Paso County government.
