LIMA — The City of Lima’s Smart Cities Initiative will be getting a more comprehensive overview in City Council’s Finance Committee to gauge both past and future expenses involved in the project.
Lima City Council approved a $457,000 contract involving the program Monday night. The contract with Utilty Metering Solutions will update the city’s case management systems and normalize case and incident reports in order to ensure accuracy when sharing files between Lima Municipal Court and its safety services department.
While Councilor Sam McLean expressed his support of the contract, he also asked that council forward the initiative to its finance committee for a review of the initiative’s costs to the city.
“I would like to send the Smart City Initiative to the finance committee. We need to get caught up with what we have spent in the past and what we might spend in the future,” McLean said.
