No; According to the Carbondale Revised Code Section 1-6-13, professional or artistic skills pursuant to a written contract do not need to follow formal contract procedures.

The entire project cost is $39,524.10. Here is how the project breaks down:
First year annual services (GCMS upgrades, maintenance, support, hosting), server storage, premium suite of modules, 500 pages of content migration, ongoing recurring 48-month redesign, five years of agendas and minutes in PDF format, three days of onsite training and two department headers (Police and Fire Departments).
The City’s website revamp was long overdue. The last redesign occurred in 2008 with the homepage revamp occurring in 2016. Typically, the average website is redesigned every 3-4 years. In addition, we wanted to make the City’s website more user-friendly, interactive and inclusive of all City Departments.
The new website features a local Business Directory (lodging, dining, shopping, nightlife, etc.), News Alert System, Form Center and Staff Directory.
