Louisville recognized for using technology to track falling population rank

A new survey credits the Louisville metro government with using information technology to better serve its citizens.

One of the technology’s first uses is the ability to track the metro area’s national population ranking, which has dropped from 16th to 31st since the city-county merger.

New technology allows the city to update its population ranking on road signs

Says Walter Raftery, Director of Advanced Technology at Road Maintenance Services, “The technology is even cooler in that it looks like someone just went out and marked up the sign by hand.  What do they call it, Web 2.0 or whatever?  It’s warm and fuzzy, not like that stiff, northerner LED signage.”

We may not be efficient in keeping people here, but at least one can’t say the same about tracking it.
