    Computerized record keeping

    I have a request from a small town (population: 4,000) to locate other small towns that have switched over to computerized records. They would like to ask these towns about the costs, computer programs, etc. Responses with contact information would be appreciated. Thanks!

    You need to review you state statutes. You can digitize all your records, but your state laws may require to you retain original hard copies for a specified period of time.

    We're digitizing our records in-house.

    I suggest you contact your state's Municipal Association (such as the Maine Municipal Association). I'm sure that this question has come up before. Also, you should contact the state government agency responsible for local services or for administration (like the Department of Administrative and Financial Services). Maine, for example, has a Fund for the Efficient Delivery of Local and Regional Services that provides grants for projects that promote efficiency.
