Township Website Receives E-Gov’t Award
Posted: March 11, 2013
The Randolph Township municipal website has been selected by the Monmouth University Polling Institute and the Graduate Program in Public Policy as one of the ten best municipal websites in New Jersey.
According to the notification sent to Mayor MacArthur, a total of 540 municipal websites were analyzed for availability of content and ease of use during the past year. Randolph’s website “...received high marks in nearly every category and was particularly noted for online access to citizen transactions.”
The Monmouth University Polling Institute and the Graduate Program in Public Policy launched an e-governnment project to examine how New Jersey municipalities use their websites to inform citizens, provide services and encourage public engagement.
Township manager John Lovell said he was delighted by the recognition. “Randolph has long been ahead of the game in terms of demonstrating best practices for a municipal website.”
He went on to add, “The site proved to be an invaluable communications tool throughout the days following Super Storm Sandy when so many residents desired regular updates on Randolph’s recovery efforts.”
An awards ceremony will take place on March 21, 2013 at the university to formally recognize award recipients.
