2006 Digital Counties Survey

And the Winners Are…

County governments are using Information Technology with greater and greater savvy each year, according to the 2006 Digital Counties Survey, an annual study by the Center for Digital Government (Center) and the National Association of Counties (NACo). To recognize their hard work and innovation, the survey’s top digital counties will be honored at a national awards ceremony which will coincide with NACo’s national conference in Chicago, Illinois next month.

In April, all counties in the United States were invited to participate in the 2006 Digital Counties Survey. County officials responded to questions that included more than 100 measurements and data points about online service delivery, infrastructure, architecture and governance models.

"In today's world, technology is essential for effective and efficient government," said NACo Executive Director Larry E. Naake. "County governments realize this and are using technology in new ways to improve the delivery of services to Americans. The Digital Counties Survey illustrates the innovation being pursued by counties across the country."

Center Executive Director, Cathilea Robinett adds, “Counties continue to strive for excellence in serving their citizens. Our Digital Counties Survey showcases those counties most committed to service and innovation. Congratulations to all the winners!”

Thanks Dj. Must be something about us skins fans! This actually turned into a pretty big deal (in a small pond kinda way) at work today. Me and two of the IT guys I work with are gonna be recognized at the next commission meeting.

Here are the two pages that I made.

and my finest creation (It's a map :D )

Edit: I'll admit these aren't sexy or flashy. They pretty a straight forward means of disseminating information to the public. In particular the real estate industry. I know for a fact that they are used every day by local Realtors, appraisers, mortgage lenders, title companies and taxpayers (I give them the ammo to argue their assessment). I for one am proud that I contribute to government giving something back. That's what motivates me.

Edited again cause I wanted to.
