Sunshine on Government 2012
Government Website Review

Sunshine Evaluation Overview

For a second year during Sunshine Week (openness of government operations) the LWVGB wished to review local government web sites to determine the level to which the web site is used to promote openness of operation as well as usefulness for citizens. In 2011 seventeen sites were reviewed and rated based on an evaluation tool that the committee developed. This year a decision was made to change the focus for outcome to refine the evaluation tool and to make recommendations for content that would promote open operation.
