    Local governments would seem to be the perfect testing grounds for implementing new technologies. The manageable population size and smaller infrastructure lend themselves, in some cases, to making innovation possible. See a recent post about the case of Manor, TX:

    Social Media in the Public Sector

    A recent Washington Post article also reported that one financially battered CA city is embracing various new technology that is saving them money and helping provide better services. Some of the changes they made, like installing additional security cameras to support a reduced police force, were made out of necessity. But other ideas seem like they would serve a useful role in financially strong communities as well.

    What are some of the best practices your community’s government has implemented? Would you recommend them to other municipalities? Do you have ideas that you haven’t seen anybody use yet, but think could have some clout?

    Came across an article in GovTech today about another city in California that has made great progress through use of technology. Wrote a short blog post here: “Free Wi-Fi, Comparing (Refurbished) Apples to Oranges.”
