PTI is pleased to announce the winners and significant achievement award recipients of the 2017 Technology Solutions Awards. This annual program recognizes PTI member local governments for their use of technology to enhance government services and operations.

"I congratulate PTI member officials who submitted entries for this year's program," said Alan Shark, Executive Director of PTI. "At a time when many governments are forced to 'do more with less,' these governments are being proactive and often innovative when it comes to applying technology initiatives to solve problems."
