City of Sacramento moves closer to a top digital city

City moves up in rank in citizen engagement compared to similarly sized cities

November 13, 2017

The Center for Digital Government (CDG) has announced the winners of the 2017 Digital Cities Survey. Now in its 17th year, the annual survey recognizes cities using technology to improve citizen services, enhance transparency and encourage citizen engagement.

This year, the California capital has ranked 4th place nationally in the 250,000 – 499,999 population category. Cities submit entries explaining their IT achievements, with the ultimate goal being the acceptance and sharing of best practices.

“I am so proud of our City and the commitment we have made to using technology in meaningful ways,” said Maria MacGunigal, City of Sacramento Chief Information Officer. “We are focused on improving the lives of those living in, visiting, and doing business in our community. We have a vibrant technology community that is leaning forward and building smart partnerships that connect citizens with government and provide transparent efficient services.”

The top-10 ranked cities will be honored at an awards ceremony during the National League of Cities’ annual conference in Charlotte, N.C., on November 16. Read more about the winners here.
