“I liked the idea of being able to update our city code in real-time. The software also offered online ordinance creation, which would speed up the code amendment process. I’ve been using self-publishing software since 2018, and I’ve really liked being able to create an ordinance in existing code.”
- Pamela Spencer, City Recorder/Clerk, Vineyard, UT
