Award finalists offer an array of features and functionality that cause them to surpass websites in their class. The Juggle.com government awards editors hand-selected this year’s Top Local Government Award recipients by evaluating a variety of site features and functionality, including usability, timely content, access to e- government services and technological innovation.
“The drive to make fruita.org a relevant site makes it imperative for us to keep it as stocked as possible with current city information, documents available for download, maps, etc., so people keep coming back, and we keep having high ratings on efficiency and transparency when the citizen surveys go out every two years. We wanted to present a clear, easy-to-use access point to as many documents and forms as possible, common city maps and GIS information, and frequently asked questions, in an effort to keep our citizens coming back to this site for municipal information,” noted Dehmel.
