CountyStat Program Earns International Recognition
The CountyStat program -- instituted by County Executive Ike Leggett in January 2008 -- to increase government performance and hold those responsible accountable for the results -- has received a Certificate of Excellence from the International City/County Management Association’s (ICMA) Center for Performance Measurement.
The program tracks the County’s performance in addressing challenges using real-time data and holding departments and agencies accountable for their progress and results in such areas as overtime use, youth initiatives, affordable housing, pedestrian safety, emergency preparedness, etc.
CountyStat is accessible online, and the site offers a variety of performance information, including presentations on pedestrian safety, overtime use, pothole repairs, permitting services, facilities rentals and cell phone use.
