Albemarle County has again been named among the top ten most technologically advanced county governments in the nation.
The Center for Digital Government and National Association of Counties (NACo) ranks Albemarle County fourth, in a population category of 150,000 or less, when it comes to using technology to deliver services to customers and citizens.
“We are delighted to be included in the elite communities across the country that are receiving national recognition for providing quality information technology services to their citizens,” said County Executive Tom Foley in response to the county’s ranking.
"Counties across the country are aligning technology initiatives with executive strategic priorities to provide vital cost savings and administrative efficiencies," said NACo Executive Director Matthew D. Chase.
Albemarle County is the highest-ranking Virginia locality, ahead of Roanoke, Franklin and Gloucester Counties. This is also the eleventh year in a row that the county has been named in the national ranking.
