We are currently working with the City of Golden Valley to integrate ePermits with electronic plan review software.
Incorporating this process will allow plan review permits to be obtainable on the ePermits web site.
For permits that require a plan review, our ePermits website kicks off the process with a permit application. Once submitted and application fees are collected, a permit is created in PIMS. Subsequently, our PIMS system communicates with the electronic plan review software signifying a permit plan is ready to be reviewed and evaluated. The applicant is kept well informed of the progress via email.
Specific PIMS setup and testing is in full swing. Weekly meetings are underway to ensure all tasks are completed on time and to certify the project will meet all critical deadlines.
We look forward to a successful go live for Golden Valley in 2019!
The “Primary Person” for a household in RecTrac is considered to be the account holder. Usually, you would want this person to be an adult. There is a method for enforcing this in both RecTrac and WebTrac. This method involves a custom screen design.
Go to Management > System Management > Screen Management > Management Screen Management and create a custom screen for Household Update. (If one already exists, simply open the existing one.)
On the Birthday Field for the Primary Person, set the MaxDate field to: “DaysFromToday|-6575”. This will ensure the Primary Person has to be at least 18 years of age. To use an age other than 18, simply adjust the |-<x> value appropriately by multiplying 365 by the minimum age desired. |-7665, for example, would be a minimum age of 21.
(Optional) You can make the field “Required” by selecting the FieldRequired option from the Advanced Field Parameters screen.
Save your changes. Be sure to apply your custom screen. Refer to the Topic Doc linked below.
You can do this for WebTrac also. Go to Management > Systems Management > WebTrac Mangement > WebTrac Management Screen Management and repeat the steps above. At this time WebTrac does not prevent the user from accessing “newer” dates on the calendar, but when validating the value it will give them a message that the birthday has to be prior to <x> date.
GIS and Public Safety have a very strong and close-knit tie to the agencies which LOGIS supports. In order to better support our Public Safety agencies, our current Public Safety GIS Technician and recently-hired Public Safety GIS Technician addition (which was approved in the 2019 budget) are reporting directly to the LOGIS GIS Coordinator, Ben Verbick. This creates a deeper knowledge base and the ability to utilize strong GIS resources already available at LOGIS.
April 23, 2019 LOGIS staff rolled out new versions of the Property Data / Special Assessments and eProperty software. Several user requested enhancements were included in these releases. One of the enhancements in eProperty was support for Invoice Cloud as a payment engine. Our next release is scheduled for July 23, 2019. Development and support staff are busy programming and testing the new enhancements in preparation of this release.
