This year’s recipients applied innovative web technology in order to provide citizens with greater access to local businesses and community initiatives. Jonesboro.org is one of several top notch Local Government portals helping to support and strengthen the local community.
According to Jack Turner, Website Designer and Content Manager for the City of Jonesboro, “We are committed to the key components of E-Government, which helped us find a focus and direction for the new site. We plan to continue to focus on these E-Government components by offering services, documentation, and creative ways for the public to participate in their Government.”
The awards editor at Juggle.com hand-selected this year’s Top Local Government Award recipients by evaluating a variety of site features and functionality, including: usability, up-to-date content, access to e-government services, community resources and technological innovation.

“We want the public to know anything and everything about what their government is doing. For example, we now offer our complete budget (detail by line item) on our finance page.
