Brownstown residents may soon have the ability to pay their sewer bills online thanks to a decision made by the town council.
That’s part of better service town residents and the town government is likely to gain through the purchase of new accounting software.
“It’s an expensive outlay, but I just think it’s time we do this,” council president John Nolting said. “It’s time we move into the 21st century.”
Nolting’s comments came during discussions about the purchase of accounting software from CompuTrain Enterprises Inc. of South Bend for $12,000.
Clerk-treasurer David Willey said the new software, which also will help with the budgeting process, allows for direct deposit of employee pay and publishing financial reports. It will have an annual maintenance fee of $4,500.
