City council authorized the ordinance on October 12. The contract for the project has been finalized and we’re currently working to set a spring start date. The project, which focuses on managing property and facilities, went to the Technology Oversight Committee (TOC) on a monthly basis starting in October. This offered the independent five-member citizen advisory committee the opportunity to review and ask questions about the contract as well as Project details. The EAM Project will be monitored by the TOC as well as a quality assurance firm.
