City of Seattle, http://www.cityofseattle.net/

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.
