The City of Fort Collins has been named a top-ranked city in the 2013 Digital Cities Survey by e.Republic’s Center for Digital Government and the Digital Communities Program. The City placed 5th in the 125,000-249,999 population category.
“This represents the highest finish to date for Fort Collins in this population category and is due to the passion, commitment and contributions of all members of the City’s IT Department as well as many others throughout the organization,” said Dan Coldiron, Chief Information Officer for the City of Fort Collins.
In its 13th year, the annual survey is part of the Digital Communities Program and is open to all U.S. cities. The survey criteria focused on results achieved by cities – via the use of technology – in operating efficiencies, realizing strategic objectives, innovative or creative solutions or approaches, effective collaboration and transparency measures, among others.
The top 10 cities in each category will be honored at a special awards ceremony during the National League of Cities (NLC) annual conference in Seattle on Nov. 15.
