The Center for Digital Government together with the National Association of Counties (NACo) and e.Republic’s Digital Communities Program, awarded Franklin County, Va., a Digital Counties award for its use of information technology in service to the citizen. This is the fifth consecutive year that Franklin County has been a top finisher in the under 150,000 population category.

Among Franklin County's achievements were a new budget website that improves transparency and allows citizens to have a say in budget decisions. The county also has a new data center and is expanding broadband service to underserved areas. Last winter the county began using iPads for mobile building inspections, and expanded its video workforce development capabilities. In addition, the county collaborates with other jurisdictions in Virginia and North Carolina to make the best use of resources and technology.
