BPW Approves Geographic Information Systems Plan; Studies Rate Restructure
A geographic information systems (GIS) proposal from JEO was accepted Wednesday, Nov. 20 by the Auburn Board of Public Works (BPW).
The utility will realize a savings of $21,000 through four years over the current contract, notes Dave Hunter, general manager.
Annual costs will be $15,100 the first year; and $5,100 each over the second and third years. The latter years also include $10,000 annually for GIS consulting. Projected fourth year cost is $5,100 with no consulting cost. If the present pact had been renewed, it would have been $18,000 a year over three years.
JEO will switch BPW’s data to ArcView, provide staff with training while assisting the utility and the City of Auburn in cleaning up and rearranging information. ArcView will be set up to match the current configuration and usage. Its software is being enhanced allowing BPW to become a direct user essentially eliminating the middleman.
