Welcome to our new Nanticoke City redesigned website!

We have been hard at work redesigning and updating our website over the last few weeks and are excited to share it with you!

Our goal was to create an informative, welcoming, and user-friendly platform to move our city forward. The website features a consistent and intuitive design to make navigation and finding relevant information simple. Our new website is mobile responsive, making it easy to use on all browsers and portable devices.

Going forward we will continue to update the website with current events, city news, and useful information for families, and all people of our community.

Please bear with us as we work out the kinks in our site.

Thank you.

Please note:  After the initial launch of our redesigned website and after the Covid19 threat is over, this section will be used for "special announcements" and updates.
