TampaGov Receives Best of the Web Designation Center for Digital Government Awards Tampa Top Ranking
September 20, 2007 - The City of Tampa has been selected as the Center for Digital Government’s 2007 Best of the Web winner in the City Portal category. The Best of the Web is a nationwide annual awards program that evaluates state, city and local government web sites based their innovation, efficiency, economy, and functionality for improved citizen access.

The City of Tampa has consistently done well in the Best of the Web competition, having previously won in 2002, and finishing in the top three in 2005 and 2006. This year, the City of Tampa finished ahead of such other top-notch web sites as Fort Collins, Colorado and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Earlier this year, the City of Tampa’s Technology and Innovation Department spearheaded a complete redesign of the city’s web site to make it more customer-friendly. TampaGov.net, host to more than 6,000 pages of information and useful applications, was redesigned with the goal of providing a more consistent, accessible and successful user experience. Among the improvements was an innovative “Tampa Neighborhoods” service that provides extensive up-to-date information on association contacts, meeting schedules, maps, reports, crime statistics, flood zones, areas of interest and more. These enhancements, combined with TampaGov’s already extensive e-government offerings such as online bill pay, allow the public to access their city government 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For more information on the Best of the Web award contact Technology and Innovation Project Leader Steve Cantler at (813) 274-8293. To learn more about the City of Tampa and its services visit www.tampagov.net.
