A national non-profit group in favor of open government practices has given Leon County an “A” for transparency. As Sascha Cordner reports, county officials say it’s due to the redesign of their web site about three months ago.
After considering about six-thousand government websites across the nation, the Sunshine Review chose just a little more than 200 to receive the Sunny Award for open and transparent government. Leon County was one of the 214 recognized. County Administrator Vince Long says it’s understandable why the county received such an honor.
