How are New York state’s counties doing in their effort to provide information to the public on their websites?

More than half of the county websites in New York state are failing to provide citizens access to information about audits, contracts and lobbying activity and many fall well short of current best practice for government websites, a statewide audit by the USA TODAY Network has found.

The nonprofit organization Reclaim New York is about to launch an ambitious transparency indexing tool developed in partnership with the Malaga-based platform Dyntra. « All counties, cities, towns, villages, and school districts are listed and ready to be evaluated by citizens and public officials. As the entities are evaluated, they will move up in the rankings, » according to Program Manager Candice DiLavore.
