MANHATTAN, KS — Roanoke County, Virginia has earned a top spot in the 2011 Best of the Web awards competition, which judges state, county and city web portals throughout theU.S. The county’s official government website was developed by CivicPlus, a company that develops, designs and manages community engagement systems that use advanced technology to connect people with government in new, more efficient ways.
“The more a local government can offer residents electronically, the easier they make it for people to access services and get the help or information they need,” said CivicPlus CEO Ward Morgan. “CivicPlus works hand in hand with local government teams to design websites that reflect the unique personality of each area while sharing best practices and the lessons we’ve learned from working with local governments for more than 10 years. We congratulate Roanoke County on winning this prestigious award.”
Best of the Web spotlights government websites that demonstrate the highest levels of innovation, functionality and efficiency. Websites were judged by a panel of experts in a wide range of categories including site accessibility, innovation, cost-savings, ease of use and exceptional service to the public. Best of the Web is a joint project between Government Technology magazine and the Center for Digital Government.
