    Tarrant County Recognized as one of the "Top Ten Digital Counties" in the U.S.

    The Center for Digital Government has ranked Tarrant County among the "Top Ten Digital Counties" in the `500,000 or more' population category.  Top-ranked counties received the award at a reception during the National Association of Counties' annual conference in Fort Worth last week.
    The ranking was achieved after Tarrant County took part in a nation-wide survey known as the NACo 2013 Digital Counties Survey.
     "This tremendous honor is a reflection of Tarrant County's progressive information and communications technology strategy, comprehensive eGovernment vision, as well as its ongoing support from elected and appointed officials," said Tarrant County Chief Information Officer Stephen L. Wetzel.
    The Center for Digital Government is a national research and advisory institute providing government, education and industry leaders with decision support, research and educational services to help them effectively incorporate new technologies in the 21st Century.
    Top-ranked counties will be featured on, in Government Technology magazine, and the Center's best practices and thought leadership white papers, such as the Digital Cities and Digital Counties Survey Best Practice Guide.  Present at the reception to receive the award on behalf of Tarrant County were Precinct 1 Commissioner Roy C. Brooks, Precinct 2 Commissioner Andy Nguyen, Precinct 3 Commissioner Gary Fickes, County Administrator G.K. Maenius, and Wetzel.
