Doña Ana County's website among nation't 10 best
Doña Ana County — For the eighth consecutive year, the Center for Digital Government and the National Association of Counties (NACo) have named Doña Ana County's website among the best in the United States for counties with populations under 250,000.
The county's website is ranked fifth in the nation in its category - up from seventh in 2012. The website ranked eighth in 2011, third in 2010, second in 2009, fourth in 2008, eighth in 2007 and ninth in 2006.
The website was overhauled in June of this year in a joint project by the Doña Ana County Information Technology Department and the Doña Ana County Public Information Office. It is updated on a near-daily basis.
Doña Ana County was among the top digital counties honored at a national awards ceremony, which coincided with NACo's national conference held earlier this month in Fort Worth, Texas.
"Our website is constantly being improved due to teamwork and innovative ideas between the technicians and department heads and users," said Interim Doña Ana County Manager M. Sue Padilla. "I'm proud of the ongoing collaboration between the Information Technology Department and the Public Information Office that led to this prestigious award, and I am confident the website will continue to improve over time to meet this dynamic county's many unique challenges."
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 National Association of Counties (NACo) is a full-service organization that provides legislative, research, technical, and public affairs assistance to county governments. Created in 1935, NACo continues to ensure that the nation's 3,066 counties are heard and understood in the White House and Congress.
