Avondale Among Top Digital Cities in the Nation

The Center for Digital Government (CDG) has ranked Avondale as one of the top cities in the country in its 2019 Digital Cities Survey. The award recognizes cities for their commitment to and innovations in digital government.

The survey focused on results achieved by cities, via the use of technology to tackle social challenges, enhance services, strengthen cybersecurity and more. The highest-ranking cities in the survey showed great strides in leading the nation when it comes to leveraging data to improve a wide range of city services and initiatives.

Avondale received 10th place honors in the 75,000 – 124,999 population category.  Winners will be honored at a special awards ceremony held during the National League of Cities annual conference hosted in San Antonio on November 21st.

“The top Digital Cities this year are taking the IT department far beyond the role of service provider,” said Phil Bertolini, co-director of CDG. “They’re exploring creative ways to leverage their technology investments and redefining the role of the public-sector technology leader at the city level.”
