Fairfax County has been recognized by the Center for Digital Government and the National Association of Counties as one of the top digital counties in the US. Counties based on their population were judged on 100 different measurements including services delivery, county governance and technology infrastructure. For counties with a population of over 500,000 Fairfax County was ranked 4th in the nation and this is the third time the county has been in the top 5.
With 24/7 access to critical information the county has eliminated citizens worrying about not being able to make it to a government facility during traditional business hours. Using a combination of IVR (interactive voice response), web services and kiosks citizens can get information of a wide variety of services. An example of the services that are available include paying county personal property taxes (due Oct 5th), apply for employment, check on county building permits, register for Parks and Recreation classes, look up real estate sales information and reserve library books. With the local cable TV Channel you can also watch tapes of supervisors meetings, learn more about Fairfax County Parks and get emergency information.
Other local counties recognized in their population categories and included Montgomery County & Anne Arundel County in MD, Arlington, Loudoun and Prince William County, VA.
Center Executive Director, Cathilea Robinett added, "America's counties continue to make astonishing strides each year in their use of technology. In doing so, they greatly improve services to their citizens and make even better use of government's precious resources. Congratulations to all the winners!"
