New system could collect fees more efficiently


The city of Albany hopes a new system will help collect fees more efficiently. 

Tuesday, commissioners approved spending nearly $99,000 on new financial software.

They say the current system is outdated and cashiers have to enter information into a multiple applications.

That wastes time and leads to mistakes. The new software should improve the speed and accuracy of cash receiving services.

"We wouldn't want someone to have an error when they are paying for their ticket or a license, and second they will move in and out of those lines much more quickly so if they are waiting they don't have to wait while we enter it into several different systems," said Kris Newton, Finance Director.

SPLOST revenue will pay for the system which should be up and running by May.
