The City of Nanaimo has garnered yet another award for its e-Town Hall meeting event held in March.
The city took home the Spirit of Innovation Award from the Municipal Information Systems Association of B.C. The award recognizes the creative use of IT applications by municipalities.
The event was the first of its kind on Vancouver Island, and allowed residents to pose questions to city council and staff members via Facebook, Twitter, email, web form and phone in real time.
Only one other similar event has been held in B.C. Nanaimo's technical team had to develop a specific system to power the event.
