In February 2016, Commissioner of Finance Michele Madigan created the Smart City Commission to help set Saratoga Springs on a path to becoming a smarter city and started the process by developing a roadmap which was presented at the October 18, 2016 City Council Meeting.  The Smart City Commission members include CIOs from the School District, Library, Hospital, Skidmore, Empire State College, The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, The Saratoga Convention and Tourism Bureau, and several local technology company CIOs.
