Technology can help local government communicate with and engage the public in decision making in a more meaningful way. And with the growing pool of tech tools out there on the market, it is easy to want to jump in head first to try them out. But before you do, it is essential to make sure you have set a foundation so that the digital programs you put in place are successful. Justin Heyman, Franklin Township's IT Director and past president of GMIS International, will discuss the elements to a solid foundation of governance and how your community will benefit.
