Bill Schrier, deputy director of eRepublic's Center for Digital Government presented the City of Sacramento, Calif., with an award for its top 10 finish in the 2012 Digital Cities program.  Gary Cook, CIO, accepted the award on behalf of the city at a meeting of the City Council Tuesday night.

Schrier outlined some of the initiatives that made a difference in Sacramento. For example, while a mobile 311 application is not that unusual these days, "Sacramento took it a step further," said Schrier, "by linking the app directly into the work management systems of some of their departments." Now, when a constituent sends a photo of an animal problem via the mobile app, it links directly into a work management ticket in the Animal Control work management software.
