St. Louis County was awarded the "Friend of Land Records" award. This award is given to an individual or organization that is not a WLIA member, but has contributed to the success or advancement of land records modernization in the State of Wisconsin. The City of Superior and Douglas County have been working together closely to develop Geographic Information Systems (GIS) infrastructure, data, and processes to better serve their constituents through efficiencies achieved through regional collaboration efforts.

County Board Chair Doug Finn, stated, "I am very pleased with the partnership formed between the three units of government. This working relationship will serve the public better and save taxpayers money."

The City of Superior and Douglas County each received the "Local Government Achievement" award. This award is given to local, municipal, tribal, and county governments or consortium that have implemented modernization using Wisconsin Land Information Program funds to exemplify the goals of the program through innovative applications, local data sharing with statewide accessibility, and cooperative agreements.

"The city is always looking at ways to become more efficient and form partnerships with other entities, so there is no burden on the taxpayer," said Mayor Dave Ross.
