Roanoke County once again claimed the top spot among counties in the 150,000-249,999 population category, reaffirming the County's committment to providing first class information technology services for its citizens. The Digital Counties Survey is a comprehensive list of everything digital, from infrastructure to IT-based services for citizens.
Conducted by the Center for Digital Government, the survey inventories the new technologies America's counties are embracing to involve citizens, move toward transparent government and increase green and sustainable measures, while continuing to improve online services.
Also this week, the Virginia Association of Counties announced Roanoke County as one of it's 2009 award winners. Roanoke County's award entry, entitled "Innovation Without Funding" explained how County staff co-founded MuniGov 2.0, a collaboration site for like minded communities looking for social media guidance and solutions, along with how the County's ongoing development of social media tools fulfill its committment to citizens, without increasing the bottom line during a tight budget year.
Congrats to the staff and leadership of Roanoke County!
