JOLIET - Will County Circuit Clerk Pamela J. McGuire rolls out her new and improved, mobile-friendly web site. The web site, www.willcountycircuitcourt.com, provides information on traffic, criminal and civil cases. Pam noted new features of the site include updated and expanded information, easier access to court form packets, social media and enhanced accessibility from mobile devices and tablets. “I am excited at all of the enhancements in the new website and the improved ease of use, especially on mobile devices,” said Pam. “And I am looking forward to hearing feedback from our legal community about the site’s functionality.”
Pam thanked Andrea Lynn Chasteen, Director of Operations, for her hard work and oversight of this initiative. Andrea coordinated efforts with the County Technical staff, adding and updating on-line interactive forms, case filing and general court information. The redesigned site will continue to provide online case information, e-filing, e-notification and e-copy services, access to court forms, costs and fee information, access to court schedules and the ability to pay court fines. Chasteen highlighted a new social media component that will post relevant information, such as emergency closures and Administrative Orders. The new site includes a robust list of frequently asked questions and answers and links to assist self-represented litigants. Further included is Human Resource information on policies, job opportunities and an online employment application.
Chasteen showed her appreciation for the group effort, stating, “I want to thank the management staff in the Circuit Clerk’s Office and the Will County IT Department especially Mike Shay and Nina Campbell for all of their efforts and extra hours of work to produce the improved site”. Pam and Andrea also complimented the Will County Systems staff for the numerous hours they spent on developing the site. “This cooperative work between county Information and Technology staff and Circuit Clerk staff, produced an excellent website at minimal cost that will be a significant benefit to the customers and attorneys that utilize it,” stated Pam.
