Commissioners awarded the $4,965,568 contract to Systems & Software Inc., based in Williston, Vt. The county gave the company the highest score among seven businesses that sought the contract.
The software will replace a system from Cpak Corp. that the county has been using for 14 years.
Unlike the county’s current billing system, the Systems & Software software will be able to more thoroughly analyze water consumption data and flag irregularities, Matelski said. He hopes to have the software installed by the end of 2018.
“It will give us the tools and analytics to monitor amounts for abnormalities and deviations,” he said.
They hope they are getting closer to getting answers about high water bills.
