[ARCHIVED] Hudson Recognized as Top 2016 Digital City

digital city

For the fourth year in a row, the Center for Digital Government (CDG) named Hudson a top Digital City for communities with a75,000 population or less. The annual survey recognizes cities using technology to improve citizen services, enhance transparency, and encourage citizen engagement.

The City was recognized for becoming one of the first Gigabit Cities in Northeast Ohio by starting Velocity Broadband, a high-speed, all-fiber internet service. Hudson was also given a top spot for its focus on government transparency, including the ability for residents to watch live and archived public meetings and view budget information to stay updated on the inner workings of the City.

In addition, mobile initiatives have increased, including the Engage Hudson app that makes it easy for residents to report a problem directly into the City’s work order system and shows there the work order is in the process. A Mobile Storm Water Inventory app replaced a paper-based process and enables the engineering staff to collect and report information from the field.

Hudson also became a member of the Summit County Alliance for Innovation, a group that works together to inspire innovation advancements in communities to help change the way local government performs. The City is also involved with the Global Institute for the Study of the Intelligent Community and attended the institute’s workshop last month to share a case study about Velocity Broadband .

The City is always looking for new ways to utilize technology and is honored to be recognized for doing so. See the full article and all the 2016 Digital City Survey winners at the link below.
