Americus - - For people living in Americus and Sumter County, finding out important geographic information could soon be just a click away.

City and county leaders spent the afternoon learning about an electronic program that can house all of the area's geographic information. Leaders say it would be a big help for governmental employees and people at home.  

"They can check partial information, they can check road data, they can find out where the closest fire hyrdogen to their property is, where their water and sewer lines are, where their water meters are, their gas lines, their gas meters, what their property is zoned," says GIS Coordinator Beverly Butcher.

You'd also be able to find information about school districts and voting precinct locations.

If approved, Butcher hopes to have the online system running by the first of the year.
