The city of Revere was one of four winners of the MMA’s annual Municipal Website Awards in 2020.

The MMA is looking for the best municipal websites for its annual awards, which will be presented during the 2022 MMA Annual Meeting.

The awards recognize excellence in customer service, functionality, convenience and government transparency delivered by a municipal website.

To enter the contest, chief municipal officials may simply fill out a short nomination form. The entry deadline is Friday, Oct. 1.
