The City of Arlington puts technology to work every day to make The American Dream City a better place to live, learn, work and play. That’s been even more evident during the coronavirus outbreak, where the City has tapped video conferencing, social media and other technology to keep residents connected to public meetings, programs and services from the safety of their homes.

In this edition of the quarterly Put Technology to Work newsletter, you can learn more about Mayor Jeff Williams’ virtual telephone town hall meetings that aimed to answer residents’ questions about the City’s COVID-19 response. You can also read more about the Municipal Court’s virtual court pilot program, a searchable tree species database for public parks, free microchipping offered by Arlington Animal Services, free online educational resources for adult library card holders and more.

All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are now produced in a digital formal, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.

The Arlington City Council has identified “Put Technology to Work” as one of five priorities. Technology is an essential aspect of daily life and has quite the impact on our organization, residents, visitors and businesses. It is also integral in achieving the City’s other priorities: Invest in Our Economy, Support Youth and Families, Enhance Regional Mobility and Champion Great Neighborhoods.
