Justices approve computer software grant for Circuit Clerk’s office
POCAHONTAS—Justices passed an ordinance to accept a $52,190.54 grant for an automated records system for the Randolph County Circuit Clerk’s Office during their Nov. 14 regular monthly meeting at the courthouse.
Randolph County Circuit Clerk Debbie Wise said that in August, the Quorum Court passed a resolution authorizing the application for the grant that would provide software for her office’s recording program. Wise presented justices with a copy of a letter she recently received from the Arkansas Association of Counties Automated Record System Fund Committee regarding the question of bid process, that provided information about what the committee does and how it came about. Seeking guidance from Association of Arkansas Counties Consultant Eddie Jones for the software, they found competitive bidding was not required. Wise said after much research, the company she recommended was one out of Missouri.
“There are several counties in Missouri that uses this company and they seem to be really pleased with them,” said Wise. “I researched this company out really well and I really like it. They’re close and it makes it easier for me to go up there and for some of my staff to go to West Plains and take a look at it, as far as training goes. I’m happy with it and I feel like that would be the best for Randolph County.”
