    Tarrant County Recognized For Technological Innovation

    Tarrant County placed among the top 10 in the 1,000,000 or more population category of the 2017 Digital Counties Survey that recognizes government technology innovation.  The survey is conducted by the Center for Digital Government (CDG) in partnership with the National Association of Counties (NACo) to identify the best technology practices among U.S. counties, including initiatives that streamline delivery of government services, encourage collaboration and shared services as well as enhance cybersecurity.

    “Digital counties are leveraging technology to improve the ways they conduct business and engage with citizens in increasingly innovative and exciting ways,” said Todd Sander, CDG executive director. “We congratulate this year’s winners for their work to reduce costs, encourage citizen engagement, increase efficiencies and proactively address citizen expectations.”

    “As technology continues to grow in all facets of our lives, county governments are adapting and innovating,” said NACo Executive Director Matthew Chase. “The Digital Counties Survey spotlights how counties deploy technology to enhance services and benefit residents while being responsible stewards of taxpayer resources.”

    Tarrant County was recognized for the Open Books webpage, which provides interested constituents, site visitors and business partners easy access to information; the West Nile Virus Interactive Tool, which allows residents to search for mosquito trap locations, (positive, negative and by ZIP Code) within a date range and by location (address, ZIP Code and city); the use of Facebook and Twitter by several offices and departments; its collaboration with other Texas counties in the TechShare program; and the development of an innovative wireless Mobile Audio/Visual platform (MAVerick), that includes an interactive high-definition display with audio/visual capability replacing outmoded smartboards in all courtrooms.
