Carson ranks 7th in nation’s digital cities
The Center for Digital Government and Digital Communities Program has announced that Carson City has been recognized as the nation’s seventh ranked “Digital City” in the small-cities category, said John Wilkinson, director of information technology for the city.
The annual assessment examines how city governments use digital technologies to better serve their citizens and streamline operations.
This is the first year that Carson City has been recognized as a Top 10 Digital City.
City Manager Larry Werner said the city maintains a strong commitment to the use of technology as a way to stretch limited resources.
“We continually look to technology as the way to do more with less, and this is even more important in lean economic times,” Werner said. “I think Carson City did well in this survey because we have departments all across the city which are focusing on being efficient through the use of technology.”
The Center for Digital Government is a national research and advisory institute on information technology policies and best practices in state and local government.
