New technology could assist in Quality of Life ticketing program

Local News

The same handheld devices being used to print new parking tickets could assist the City of Erie Code Enforcement. 

The Department of Code Enforcement and other city departments participating in the Quality of Life ticketing program would use the devices.  The handhelds can print weather-resistant tickets and store photos and other details about violations. 

Depending on the software, they can cost several thousand dollars each.  

Code Enforcement Manager Andy Zimmerman tells us, “…we’re also looking at other software; other departments need software, so we want to make sure we can cover a lot of what the different offices do with one software.”

The Office of Code Enforcement says the Quality of Life ticketing program is expected to be rolled out when they are able to obtain the devices, a process that could take a couple of months.
