Organizers and participant from the TAP Summit met November 9 with Cuyahoga County Communications Director Nicole Dailey Jones and Chief Information Officer Jeff Mowry to discuss new open government initiatives coming from TAP.
The County has made incredible advances already this fall, including the launch of a new, user-friendly website and the announcement of several developing projects. These include My Cuyahoga Concept, aimed at engaging the public in a meaningful way, and the Open Government Transparency Initiative, which provides greater access to information about county contracts and spending.
Communication’s Director Dailey Jones and CIO Mowry shared a presentation highlighting developments at the County to make information more accessible to the public. Check out their progress here:
The group looked forward to more collaboration between TAP and the County in the future, including a partnership to develop a new web app to invite customer service feedback in county departments. If you would like to get more involved, please contact us via the “Contact” link in the menubar above. We will schedule a meeting with CIO Mowry in December to discuss the web app in more depth, and the entire TAP group will reconvene for a follow-up public meeting in January.
