Brazos County commissioners are a step closer to coming up with an alternative plan for developing new computer software affecting the courts, prosecutors, and law enforcement.
Eight weeks ago, the county sued a Virginia-based company after being notified they went out of business without finishing software for the local criminal justice system.
During this week’s meeting, commissioners discussed ongoing negotiations with a possible replacement in executive session as requested by assistant county attorney Bill Ballard.
After the closed door meeting, Ballard told commissioner Irma Cauley he will compose a contract for future consideration.
Brazos County paid AMCAD, the company that went out of business, $2.6 million dollars to replace a 14 year old software system.
