A new municipal software system could end up costing taxpayers as much as $105,000.

The municipality of Dysart Et Al is looking for a new technology platform to handle everything from tax collections to payroll.

Reeve Murray Fearrey says technology has changed since they last upgraded their system approximately 14 years ago.

Fearrey adds the new system will streamline their operations.

Fearrey also says the provider of their current system no longer offers support, and that the change is necessary.

He also mentioned that at $105,000, the cost of the software replacement would be only slightly over what council budgeted for.
