Williamsburg, Va., Receives Digital City Award




January 13, 2014 By

Williamsburg, Va. scored in the top 10 in the 2013 Digital Cities survey of jurisdictions under 75,000 population, and received its award in a special presentation recently.  Williamsburg is among the most advanced in transparency of any city in the 2013 survey, said the judges, providing videos of City Council meetings as well as Planning Commission, and other decision-making bodies. The city also provides monthly financial statements on the public website, performance dashboards, business analytics, and more.
