Sincerely, Steve Smith Mayor, City of Clarendon Dear Editor, on October 25, 1994 "bids were opened on the request for proposals for the computer sys- tem. Bids are as follows: USTI - Irving, TX Hardware & Software$23,194.00 l I 1 1 1 ;bt (lartuben 2fttlB Ineode - Lubbock, TX Hardware & Software$21,274.00 Kiowa Creek - Clarendon, TX Hardware & Software$ 7,755.25 AVR Houston, TX Hardware & Software$19,128.00 Decision was made to table the computer proposals until time was taken to compare the programs presented. A meeting was set for November 1, 1994, at 7:00 p.m? On November 1, 1994 'he Aldermen discussed the proposals for the computer systems, con- sidering pros and cons for each bid. Motion was made by Alderman David Pitts, seconded by Alderman Shawn Barker, to accept the bid of Incode from Lubbock with the ad- clifton of upgrading the computers. Incode was chosen because of their experience in the field of municipal utility billing and fund accounting, their phone support system, and the fact that Incode works with several cities of our size in this area. Motion carried with one opposed. Mac Stavenhagen opposed." I want the citizens of Claren- don to know their city alderman are spending $12,250.00 on computer software. In my opinion, this is ludicrous. Regardless of the fact that Kiowa Creek Resources of- fered to "program" the cities' com- puters to their specifications at no charge as a service to our com- munity, I submit to you the pos- sibility that even with diligent effort you couldn't find a more expensive package of city management software. This software is almost double the price of one of the other bids and more than triple the price of the other.
