BELLEVUE  - I HOURS 12600 BEL-RED ROAD -- ill [ Ik'"""J Mon-Fri 7 am-5pm 454.3021 -.-*-,, Saturday 8 am-4 pm Closed Sunday New city hall computer will speed up tr,ose utility by Terry McLafferty Buying a home computer has become a popular past- time for the moderately af- fluent family. And already a great storehouse of legends has arisen concerning how difficult it is to know what you want, to buy what you need and to afford what you can't live without. Many of these same prob- lems are now facing city Fi- nance Director Aagot Hess and city administration, as they begin the long bidding process to obtain new hard- ware and tested software for city business planning. Considering the city's pre- sent needs, the total price tag will probably come out some 10 to 12 times what an ambi- tious homeowner would pay. Early estimates are in the $60,000 range. The biggest single limiting factor on what the city can buy is the state's Budget Ac- counting and Reporting Sys- tem (BARS). Established in the early 1970s, this system controls the format and the details of how cities report their dealings to the state overseers. Recent significant changes -- in 1983 on the ac- counting rules, and in 1984 for reporting regulations -- outstrip this city, and many others' ability to comply with current manual, or "old style" machinery. "When we bought our Burroughs machinery it was called a mini computer," Hess says. "Now, computer people call it an accounting machine." This venerable performer came on linp about the time of the first BARS guidelines. It was last upgraded some five years ago. "Right now, we are using all of its capaci- ty. We have run out of memory," the finance direc- tor admits. This one machine complex keeps control of all city ac- counts, including the utility records and bills, each city budget account, the city pay- roll and tracks all city expen- ditures and receipts. But still the city is forced to keep "hard copies" of most records to be safe, and when it comes to providing quick reports on the status of any account, on demand, "I practically need to keep a manual set of books to keep day to day track of the im- portant items," Hess says. Speed is also a major fac- tor in the change. A very straightforward, un- complicated utility bill might require as much as ten minutes for an operator to list the reading, compute the charges, log in say and make out says. More can occasionally they The city has ll counts; that machine longer monthly billing at 30 seconds per accounts ties uP for a day.
