DuPage County, Village of Lisle to Share GIS Services
The DuPage County Board approved an intergovernmental agreement with the Village of Lisle on Tuesday that represents taxpayer saving in excess of $60,000 per year. The agreement calls for the County to share expertise and provide specific information technology services for the Village.
Under the plan, one DuPage County staff person with expertise in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) will dedicate two days a week working to maintain the Village of Lisle’s GIS system. This includes providing data compilation, data analysis and map creation services.
The Village’s GIS Coordinator left last fall to pursue an opportunity in another community. Through the intergovernmental agreement with DuPage County, the Village estimates savings to be approximately $62,000 on an annualized basis, which includes personnel and related support costs.
“This is a perfect example of the types of taxpayer savings we can achieve when we leverage the staff and expertise we have within our community to benefit each other,” said Kevin Wiley, Chairman of the DuPage County Technology Committee. “In situations like this, everyone wins and the residents enjoy optimal service.”
“This partnership represents an excellent result for the residents of Lisle and the rest of DuPage County,” said Lisle Mayor Chris Pecak. “The Village is able to arrange for some much-needed technical assistance to maintain its GIS system, while at the same time is able to reduce costs for both the Village and DuPage County.”
