City of Seattle,

Seattle's website won first place in Government Technology's Best of the Web awards for local government, 2000.  And it is easy to see why they won the award. This well-designed, content-rich site offers local residents a wide variety of e-government resources, including

  • online services and forms (tickets, fines, and payments online; requests to reschedule jury service; requests for a municipal judge to conduct a marriage ceremony; reporting street maintenance or streetlight repair needs; cable television complaint forms)
  • databases (municipal archives, city-owned property finder, parks and recreational areas, community technology access services, neighborhood plans)
  • statistics (demographics, trade)
  • events, points of interest, and tourism information
  • city codes, ordinances, bills, and resolutions
  • and the list goes on.

When you want to know who, what, where, when, and why about Seattle, the City's website is a great place to begin your research.
