City Web site wins national award

MadisonAL.gov, the city’s Web site, has been recognized as a 2010 Top Government Website Award recipient by online encyclopedia and reference resource Juggle.com for its e-government and communication initiatives.

This year’s recipients applied innovative web technology in order to provide citizens with greater access to government information and services.

MadisonAl.gov is one of several government portals embracing the commitment to e-government services and making it easier to find government information.

“Our success is truly a team effort,” said Executive Assistant to the Mayor, Taylor Edge. “With representatives from all city departments, a much more robust set of relevant information is available across city functions rather than basic information.”

Award finalists offer an array of features and functionality that cause them to surpass websites in their class. The Juggle.com government awards editors hand-selected this year’s Top Government Award recipients by evaluating a variety of site features and functionality, including usability, timely content, access to online government services and technological innovation.

“The goal of the redesign was focused on accessibility and getting the public involved in city government,” says Mayor Paul Finley. “Our Web site team has done a wonderful job of portraying the character of Madison while providing timely, useful information to the public.”

Award recipients receive a feature page on Juggle.com that includes an interview with one of the individuals responsible for maintaining or managing each website.
