Last week, Government Technology* shared its annual list of Digital Cities winners, which included four Florida cities. Today’s story covers the final city in the series highlighting each city’s achievements.

Continuing this year’s list is Delray Beach, which won fourth place in the up to 75,000 population category:

Delray Beach ranked on this year’s list following recent efforts to increase digital citizen engagement and access to information about city services and programs. As one example of this, officials noted that the city has enabled online permit applications to streamline the process of obtaining city permits, as well as launching a mobile app dubbed MyDelrayBeach that makes information about city services more accessible to residents at any time of day.

In addition, the city's technology strategist program and budget planning worked to grow its IT department in size. Another priority was to increase its reputation with residents, visitors and across departments, including with the city's communications department, which works in close partnership with the IT team on citizen engagement efforts.
