The Cayuga County Legislature has approved a $4 million project to convert the county’s record-keeping system to a cloud-based digital format.
The new cloud-based system is called the Digital Records Electronic Access Management System, nicknamed the DREAMS project, according to The Citizen. Cayuga County Clerk Sue Dwyer, who is responsible for the county’s record-keeping program, was the main advocate for digitizing the records.
After more than two years of work, the five-year phased project was approved by the Legislature at their February 22, 2022 meeting. Funds for the project come from the county’s general fund balance and the federal American Rescue Plan Act.
