Westminster takes national honor in technology survey
(Nov 03, 2011)
The City of Westminster is once again one of the most digitally savvy cities in the nation, according to the 2011 Digital Cities Survey, an annual study conducted by the Center for Digital Government. Westminster ranked eighth in the population category of 75,000 to 125,000, tied with Roanoke, Va.
Westminster has received a top 10 ranking for 9 out of the last 10 years.
The comprehensive survey focused on results achieved by cities, via the use of technology, in operating efficiencies and realizing strategic objectives despite current fiscal constraints.
“Cities that are investing in technology are capturing cost savings that are critical to continuity of operations and their ability to meet higher demand for services,” said Todd Sander, director of Digital Communities. “The highest-ranking cities in the survey showed great strides in consolidating and enabling shared services, government transparency and communications interoperability. We applaud these innovators as they work in the spirit of collaboration to provide extraordinary value to constituents despite budget setbacks.”
The survey was open to all U.S. cities with a population of 30,000 or more.
