County going high(er) tech

March 23, 2013

Howard County commissioners are slated to meet Monday morning with the possible purchase of a new county-wide software system topping the agenda.

The software — produced by Tyler Technologies, the same company the county has used since 1992 — could cost the county between $500,000 and $600,000, according to County Judge Mark Barr.
