Alameda County wins first place for best government websites
Submitted By Guy Ashley
Alameda County has been named a first place winner in the annual rankings of the best state and local government websites. Alameda County topped the County Portal category in the nationwide Best of the Web awards contest judged by the Center for Digital Government, which cited the County's Web offerings as "a good example of how a significant amount of information can be presented cleanly and intuitively within a main website, mobile website and mobile apps."
Susan S. Muranishi, Alameda County Administrator, said the award validates the County's focus on establishing a website that addresses the public's many needs and is user friendly, an effort that is consistent with the County's broader commitment to civic engagement and community outreach as well as its ongoing push to provide government services as efficiently as possible.
Navigation of the website, according to Government Technology magazine, "is clean, logical and simplified," while the County's mobile website "boils down the content into just seven categories, which streamlines the experience even further."
