Clayton County Board of Commissioners Building, 112 Smith Street, Jonesboro

The Clayton County Board of Commissioners will hold a work session at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12 at 112 Smith Street, Jonesboro.

Tonight’s agenda includes any possible discussions of preliminary items for the July 19 regular meeting, as well as a discussion of the ECivis Grant Management System.

ECivis is a “software as a solution” (SaaS) company owned by GTY Technology Holdings, a “software as a solution” (SaaS) company that provides cloud-based software for government clients. The company’s website describes its product as “an intuitive cloud-based suite of solutions for state and local governments, education institutions, and healthcare organizations spanning functions in procurement, payments, grant management, budgeting, and permitting.”

The purpose of the grant management system is to win more grants for the county.

The BOC also will hear from the Clayton County official with the longest title, Chief Resilience Officer and Director of Fire and Emergency Impact Fee Advisory Committee Services (better known as “Chief”) Landry Merkison. He’ll discuss “tax commission expenses” which are “charged for the collection of the Fire millage.” Merkison has asked the BOC to consider “the creation and makeup of the Impact Fee Advisory Committee.”
