The most technology-advanced cities in America were named by the Center for Digital Government based on its 2006 Digital Cities Survey. The sixth annual study examines how city governments are utilizing digital technologies to better serve their citizens and streamline operations.
“We were so happy to see the fantastic improvements and innovations made by cities from coast to coast,” said Cathilea Robinett, executive director for the Center for Digital Government. “Each year, while conducting the Digital Cities Survey and other popular survey programs, we continually see America’s state and local governments raising the bar and expanding their use of technology to serve citizens. We can’t help but be inspired and impressed by the amazing strides made by this year’s participating cities.”
