“This new website will dramatically increase public access to one of our most valuable assets — data,” Cuomo said in a media release. “As it expands and evolves over time, open.ny.gov will spark innovation, improve efficiency, promote accountability, and bring the people back into government.”
Otsego County Planning Director Karen Sullivan called the website “one-stop shopping.”
The website features economic development, health, recreation, and public services information. Its unveiling was timed to coincide with national Sunshine Week, which is designed to raise awareness about open government.
