Marana's efforts to improve citizen engagement through the use of new technology were recognized Thursday when Marana was named a top-ranked digital government by the e.Republic’s Center for Digital Government and Digital Communities Program.

Marana was named the national winner among communities with between 30,000 and 74,999 residents. Other awardees were Ann Arbor, Mich. (75,000-124,999 residents), Salt Lake City (125,000-249,999) and Louisville (250,000 or more). Avondale (eighth in the 75,000-124,999 category) was the only other Arizona community to place in the competition.

Over the past year, the Town of Marana re-launched its web site, introduced a mobile app that allows users to report issues in the community and began keeping an electronic database of its assets.

Judging criteria was based on results achieved by cities via the use of technology in operating efficiencies and realizing strategic objectives despite fiscal constraints.

The Center for Digital Government is a national research and advisory institute on information technology policies and best practices in state and local government. The Center is a division of e.Republic, a national publishing, events and research company focused on smart media for public sector innovation.
