Title

Possible Action to Approve Agreement with GIS Webtech, LLC Regarding Property Search, Mapping and Demographic Database

 

Requested Action

Approve the License Agreement with GIS Webtech, LLC and authorize staff to execute the agreement.

 

Recommendation

Approve the License Agreement with GIS Webtech, LLC and authorize staff to execute the agreement

 

Description/History

MEDC needs to enter into an agreement with GIS Webtech, LLC to provide a web based real property search, mapping and demographic database on the MEDC website. Last year the longtime provider of our property search database, Xceligent, unexpectedly ceased operations and we immediately contracted with another service provider. While that service provider met our needs, we believe we have found a more comprehensive and cost effective solution that will provide us with greater capabilities when it comes to working with brokers, site selectors and business owners who are wanting to locate their business operations in Mansfield.

 

GIS Webtech, LLC will provide these services for $7,500 per year with a one- time set up fee of $1,500. The contract is a one-year contract. The funds to pay for this contract are in the approved MEDC FY18-19 Budget under Contractual Services.

 

Justification

MEDC needs a property search, mapping and demographic database on it's website to assist brokers, consultants, developers, and business owners searching for real estate in Mansfield.

 

Funding Source
