County’s Web site online after 2 years|[11/23/05]

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, November 23, 2005

Two years after it was suggested, Warren County’s official Web site is up and running.

Accessible at, the informational site includes links to all departments in government with information briefs on the board of supervisors, commissions and other entities that have some members appointed by the county and various state and federal agencies, such as the National Weather Service, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Another link guides users through commonly asked questions, such as the cost of car tags, proper procedures for reporting to jury duty, voter registration information, contacts for making property sales to the county and property tax matters.

The idea of having an Internet presence was one brought to the board by District 4 Supervisor Carl Flanders when he was elected. Flanders, now halfway through his term, said it would be helpful for residents to learn more about how county government works. He has his own Web site and uses it to provide information to constituents.

Other local government Web links can be accessed from the county’s, including the City of Vicksburg and the Vicksburg Warren School District.

E-mail addresses are also available on the site for many county workers.

Other links include a history of Warren County written by Gordon Cotton, director and curator of the Old Court House Museum, and statistical data based on U.S. Census figures.

A pencil sketch of the Old Court House Museum, used with the permission of the museum, appears on the home page.
