Data is behind the City’s decisions both large and small – from planning how to meet Arlington’s future water needs to identifying racial and ethnic disparities within the community – to better serve those who live, work, play and learn here.

In this edition of the quarterly Put Technology to Work newsletter, you can learn more about the City of Arlington’s “Your City at Work” performance measurement dashboard, featured by GovTech magazine. These dashboards, built by software company Esri, prominently feature real-time data on city programs and service performance measures on everything from police and fire response times to how much residential recycling is collected each month.

You can also read the Arlington Public Library’s virtual classrooms, a new remote video magistration project between the Arlington Police Department and Tarrant County Criminal Courts, other initiatives that exemplify how the City strives to “Put Technology to Work” for its employees and residents.

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.

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