The speed, efficiency and accuracy of property-related transactions in White Rock are expected to improve dramatically, following council approval last month of a contract for a new software system.

Council awarded a $295,000 (plus tax) contract to Tempest Development Group Inc., for a ‘Land Based Management System.’

According to a report by Chris Zota, the city’s manager of information technology, the system “will create a central directory and integrate property-related records and transactions” that will be used by planning and development, engineering and finance departments.

It will replace a system that currently “presents a number of risks and challenges,” Zota writes.

Those challenges include an inability to share data between departments, cost, slow response to inquiries and “paper records (that) are at risk of fire, water and acts of God.”

Zota notes the budget for the project is $400,000 over two years.
