For the third consecutive year, the city of Danville ranks in a national survey as one of the top cities in the nation for use of technology in municipal government.
Danville placed fourth among cities with a population of greater than 30,000 and less than 75,000. The survey focused on the use of technology by cities to create cost savings and to meet higher demand for services.
“This award is a testament to the exciting things going on in Danville and that, even through budget shortfalls, we are delivering solutions that are among the best in the country,” said Inez Harville, director of information technology for the city of Danville.
Todd Sander, executive director for the Center for Digital Government, called the top cities in this survey “true innovators.”
“We applaud them as they work in the spirit of collaboration to provide extraordinary value to constituents despite budget setbacks,” Sander said.
