4A Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2001 l By Delx'a Coates Managing Editor Applying for a building per- mit or checking on its status will be just a keystroke away when plans to streamline the county's permit process are Lmplemented. John Sheehan, the director of Plumas Corporation, is working on the project. Last month, he presented a prelim- inary outline of the plan as wel! as a timeline to imple- ment it. The board of supervi- sors is scheduled to discuss the issue again this month. Sheehan's timeline is divid- ed into four segments: *Develop a county permit tracking system *Develop a workload manage- ment system *Implement E-pernlitting ,Hire a consultant The county permit tracking system would allow county department heads and staff members to view the status of any permit, whether it be is- sued by the planning, build- ing, public works or environ- mental health departments. Sheehan said he has discov- ered permit tracking systems, which other counties are now using, similar to what Plumas County wants to implement. Rather than hiring a consul- tant to Write the software, Sheehan is optimistic that the county will be able to use one of the existing programs. Sheehan hopes the system will be installed some time be- tween March 1 and May 31 of 2002, with full implementa- tion and staff training com- pleted by the end of June. The workload management system would allow depart- ment heads and the board of supervisors to track the work- load of each department. This would allow departments to add staff as needed. Sheehan is confident that this piece of the software can be developed by the county's data processing department. To enable county residents to apply for permits on line, the proposal calls for all de- partments to put their forms into a digital format, which can be accessed via the Inter- net. Already, the environmental health and planning depart- ments have placed several permits on line. They may be accessed at . The final step in the stream- lining process is to define what additional work needs to be done and by whom. Sheehan said it's possible that the work could be completed by one individual, a firm, or even be divided between enti- ties according to specialties. "We'll bring in consultants if and when the county needs them," Sheehan said. Surf the world wide web Get your own E-Mail address tlrlO.
