Body
In 2011, City Engineering's Capital Budget (Engineering - Other Projects, Project #16, Agency 810547) included $225,000 to replace existing software used for the design of roadways and public utilities as the old software had become obsolete and was no longer supported by Vendors for the City's CADD system. Beginning in 2011 and continuing throughout all of 2012 the conversion to new software took place including extensive user training. Costs were difficult to project and now as the project nears completion, an additional $31,500 is needed to complete the final task, conversion of existing City utility and base maps to the new software.
