City in a Box: Municipal Makeover Comes to Texas

White House

U.S. Deputy Chief Technology Officer Beth Noveck wrote about the manor.govfresh event and De Leon, TX, makeover on the White House Blog (City in a Box: Municipal Makeover Comes to Texas). manor.govfresh was a collaborative effort between GovFresh and the City of Manor, TX.

From the post:

And the movement is spreading. City officials from Manor and volunteers from around the country, for example, have “adopted” De Leon in northern Texas, in order to provide it with a makeover of its own. Instead of a new wardrobe and makeup, De Leon gets a “City in a Box”—a package that includes digital citizen participation tools and assistance implementing a new website, ideation platform, records management system, and more. The conference taking place today and tomorrow will feature concrete “how to” lessons from that makeover.
