Hennepin County near top of Digital Counties list

The Center for Digital Government in conjunction with the National Association of Counties recently announced their top digital counties. Hennepin County came in second for cities with population of more than 500,000. Here are the items they outline in the article…

Survey questions were asked in a variety of areas such as computing, networking, applications, data and cybersecurity, open government, mobile services, and much more. The survey results reflect work done during the 2012 year.
