ANOKA – Anoka County is suing the company hired to upgrade its property, tax, land, and vital records system. According to court documents, Anoka County leaders believe Tyler Technologies and its failures to deliver a timely product are the reasons that many people received their property tax statements late this year.
Originally, Tyler should have completed more than $3 million worth of work by July 2018.
Tyler Technologies asked for and received two extensions on the deadline, and those extended nearly a year and a half. The county said the company has still not delivered a complete product, and is suing for damages and breach of contract.
A letter to Tyler Technologies from the county attorney’s office states, in part, “Anoka County has attempted to work with Tyler in good faith to address those concerns, but it has become apparent that Tyler is not taking its obligations seriously. Anoka County cannot wait any longer for this project to be finished.”
