Madison has been named a finalist in the CivicPlus Extreme Website Makeover 2012 contest.

CivicPlus, a software company that provides government websites, is in the 10th year of its contest.

Citizen involvement is a factor in the contest, and people can visit http://civicplus.checkboxonline.com/digital-citizen-engagement-survey.aspx. Surveys can be completed until Jan. 11.

"What CivicPro would offer in a website would allow us to continue our progress toward increased efficiency, transparency and community engagement all while saving taxpayer dollars," said Andrew Forrester, executive assistant for community relations.

Winners will be announced Jan. 21.
