Anyone visiting the city’s website, www.CityofTyler.org , with a mobile phone will automatically be redirected to the new mobile adaptation of the site, according to information from the city.

The mobile website is a streamlined version of the full Tyler website and makes accessing the most commonly sought-after pages even easier.

Visitors to the mobile site can search the library catalog, see the latest job openings, access the latest city news and upcoming events, pay water bills, look up building permits, and perform other searches.

There is a link at the bottom of the page for viewers who prefer to view the full webpage.

“This should help our citizens access city information with greater ease and transparency,” Mayor Barbara Bass said. “It’s much easier to see this mobile version on the smaller cell phone screen and navigating it is relatively simple,” she said.

To add a link to the mobile site to the iPhone home screen, go to the site, then push the icon on the bottom of the screen with an arrow coming out of a box, and select “Add to Home Screen.”
