(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Technology is changing the way Buchanan County officials connect with the community.

The county recently went live with a new website. The site provides information about each department under the county umbrella. Residents can also learn more about permits, licensing and other services.

"We've added a lot of features. We've given each office in the county the ability to update their own pages with news, alerts and calendar events as they go," said Josh Royle.

The county has also created a new Facebook page as well as a Twitter account to engage with the community. Office holders hope attract more citizen involvement.
