VALLEY CITY, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) Valley City Commissioner Madeline Luke encouraged the city commission to look into purchasing a software program that keeps track of expenses in nearly every city department.
The company OpenGov.com provides a software program that posts city expenses online. Luke talked about the program on Dakota Country Radio’s Voice of the Valley.
The cost of the program is approximately $9,000 annually for the first two years. Luke says the cost would then increase to $13,000 annually or after the city budget reaches $20 million dollars.
City Commissioner Matt Pedersen questioned the annual cost of the software program versus the public’s usage of the online tool.
On a 3 to 2 vote the city commission approved of a motion to move forward with purchasing the software program pending approval of the contract from the company.
Commissioners Pedersen and Mary Lee Nielson voted against the motion.
