City Wins Technology Award
Submitted by the City of Evanston

The City of Evanston has been awarded the Public Technology Institute’s (PTI) 2013-2014 Technology Solutions Award in the category of Web Management & E-Government. The City was recognized for its work in creating online payment options that allow residents to pay for services and fees through the City’s website.

Since the implementation of the payment options in 2013, residents have conveniently paid for more than $500,000 in services and fees online. The City expects to process close to $1 million in online payments over the next 12 months.

The City also received Significant Achievement recognition in the “Public Safety Technology” category for the Evanston Police Department’s armored police surveillance vehicle, and in the “IT & Telecommunications” category for its license plate recognition and “stickerless” wheel tax program.

The Technology Solutions Awards recognize local governments that use technology to improve service delivery, reduce costs and generate revenue in the following categories: Data and Performance Metrics; Geospatial Information Systems (GIS); Public Safety Technology; Energy/Environment Technology; IT and Telecommunications; and Web Management and E-Government.

The Public Technology Institute actively supports local government executives through research, education, executive-level consulting services, and national recognition programs. To view the complete list of winners, visit
