Pilot Light: Krueger Chairs Justice Panel
District Attorney Maureen Krueger has been appointed chairwoman of the Criminal Forms Subcommittee of the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts.
She will conduct four or five meetings a year, sometimes more in busy legislative years.
The committee was established in 1985 to help keep official forms consistent with new law, appellate opinions and the needs of the court. The committee ensures that new or revised forms are necessary, usable and legally sufficient. Other committee members include public defenders, judges, clerks and magistrates.
Krueger serves the 19D prosecutorial district, encompassing all of Moore County.
CONTRACT -- Moore County turned a contract signing into a ceremony Thursday when a $1.5 million Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) contract was signed with Tyler Technologies Inc.
The Board of Commissioners voted to award the contract at the July 20 meeting.
Present for the 10:30 a.m. signing, held in the commissioners' meeting room in the historic courthouse in Carthage, were Commissioners' Chairman Nick Picerno, Richard E. Peterson Jr., president, Financial Management Solutions, and ERP Committee members Commissioner Tim Lea, County Manager Cary McSwain, County Attorney Misty Randall Leland, Clerk Megan Owrey, Tax Administrator Wayne Vest, Information Technology Director Darlene Yudell, Planning Director Joey Raczkowski and Finance Officer Lisa Hughes.
The ERP system will provide integrated applications for such departments as tax, finance, IT, human resources and planning. Through the new county Web site, the system will offer online services to residents that were not previously available. County officials say it will improve operational efficiency and effectiveness by eliminating redundant data collection and business functions by different departments, paper-based processes and reliance on individual systems. The ERP system is also expected to reduce IT systems from 16 to one.
It will take 24 to 36 months to complete implementation of the ERP system. Strategic planning for an integrated system was initiated in 2005, and two vendors submitted bids in 2007.
BOLES -- Rhonda Todd, legislative assistant to state Rep. Jamie Boles, visited Moore County Thursday to become more familiar with the legislative district.
In so doing, she took a personal day for the visit.
Because of state budget cutbacks, operational funds are not available to maintain Boles' office in Raleigh on a full-time basis, as was the case during the legislative session. However, Todd says she checks e-mail and telephone messages daily during the adjournment period.
"Please feel free to contact the Raleigh office in the event you have any legislative interests or concerns in the district which require our assistance," she said in an e-mail message.
The telephone number is (919) 733-5903 and her e-mail address is Bolesla@ncleg.net.
DSS -- Contract approval and performance-based budgeting goals are on the agenda for the Wednesday, Sept. 16, meeting of the Moore County Board of Social Services.
The 3 p.m. meeting will be held in the Carriage Oaks Facility board room. County Commissioner Cynthia Morgan chairs the board.
