Sandy City, UT Communications Team Wins Best of State Award 

We are elated to share that our #CPfamily member, Sandy City, UT, won the Best of State Award for Web-Based Community Resources. A foundational component of the City's digital community engagement strategy is its CivicPlus® website. Our director of product marketing, Jennifer Elliott, sat down with Sandy City Software Architect Engineer Teako Warfield-Graham to learn about her and her team's efforts to leverage best-in-class technology to create positive civic experiences with their residents.

“We are proud of our residents for engaging with us especially via our My Alert system that is key in the event of an emergency. We have seen our community engagement grow to nearly 36,000 sign ups in the past 4 years. Our ‘Connect With Us’ web hub was built to make it easy for citizens to go to one location for all of the ways they can connect with Sandy City.”

—Sandy City Communication Director, Eric Richards
