Schommer said there was no cost to choosing not to move forward with the other agreement.
The city put out requests for the bid about two years ago, Schommer said, and Motorola and Tyler Technologies both responded.
The vendor the city used before Tyler Technologies had a series of lack of support issues and lack of upgrades, Schommer said, and that’s why the city chose to upgrade their old technology.
“To continue to pay for services that we weren’t getting didn’t make sense,” Schommer said, adding that Tyler Technologies and Motorola were not the companies the city had problems with.
The contract will initially cost about $606,000, Schommer said, and there will be annual service agreements as well that are expected and factored into the city budget.
