Henderson, Nev. – The Center for Digital Government (CDG) announced the winners of the 2018 Digital Cities Survey today, Nov. 14, 2019. Now in its 19th year, the annual survey recognizes cities using technology to tackle social challenges, enhance cybersecurity, improve transparency and much more. The City of Henderson was named eighth among cities with a population of 250,000 to 499,999.

“Congratulations to this year’s Digital Cities winners, who are working to make their communities more secure, user-friendly, efficient and resilient,” said Teri Takai, executive director for CDG. “Their efforts are making technology a driver of better, smarter, more responsive government.”

“The City of Henderson is honored to again be recognized for our efforts to provide residents with a user-friendly experience when they access our services,” said City Manager Richard Derrick. “This recurring top-10 designation highlights our effective use of digital tools to engage our residents and to increase transparency and open government in ways that make the City of Henderson even more responsive to the needs of our community.”

The survey honors cities in five population classifications: 500,000 or more, 250,000 to 499,999; 125,000 to 249,999; 75,000 to 124,999 and fewer than 75,000.

The top ten 2019 cities increased focus in areas such as cybersecurity, citizen experience/e-service, disaster recovery/continuity of operations, data governance, increased City/department/IT collaboration, infrastructure modernization, cloud computing, and mobile applications.

These cities will be honored at an awards dinner during the National League of Cities’ annual conference in San Antonio, Texas, on Nov. 21.
