St. Louis, MO, April 08, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Management Solutions for Government (MS Govern), a division of Harris Computer Systems, is pleased to announce the addition of the Town of Hempstead to its growing customer base in the State of New York.
Hempstead, NY is America’s largest Township, with a population of more than 760,000. Encompassing more than 142 square miles, the Township is larger than six U.S. states. It contains 51 unincorporated areas and 22 incorporated villages; more than 65 parks and marinas; and nearly 2,600 miles of town, county, state, and federal roads. Residents are proud of the town’s unique and rich heritage, which can be traced back to 1644—the earliest days of European settlement in North America.
The Town of Hempstead has much to offer both residents and visitors. Nature lovers and bird watchers flock to the town annually as it offers some of the finest wildlife and nature areas in the country, including Long Island’s newest and most innovative environmental recreation facility, the Norman J. Levy Park and Preserve. History buffs enjoy the state-of-the-art Cradle of Aviation Museum which includes a collection of more than 70 aircraft and spacecraft.
Perhaps Hempstead’s greatest resource is its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. From paddleball and shuffleboard to volleyball and basketball, the town’s famous Point Lookout and Lido Beaches offer something for everyone. An abundance of navigable inland waterways makes the town a true haven for recreational boating, sailing and fishing.
“We are very excited to add the largest US Town to our growing list of customers. With a presence at other Long Island Towns within both Nassau and Suffolk Counties, we will be providing the Town of Hempstead with a configurable, proven and New York-based solution that will serve the Town’s tax billing & collection needs for many years to come since Town constituents will be able to view and pay for their tax bills online. The Long Island Govern Users Group is excited to the addition as well and we are looking forward to the Town’s participation in this local users group. With Harris’ valued business model, we will build a long term partnership with the Town,” states Richard Beaini, Regional Sales Director.
“Hempstead Town prides itself on being on the cutting edge of important technological advances that ensure quick and responsible service to our taxpayers,” stated Hempstead Town Receiver of Taxes Don Clavin. “The comprehensive system upgrade, new software platform and support services provided by Govern Software will help streamline internal operations, enhance communications with other governmental partners and allow us to adapt to evolving technological and data changes. Most importantly, Govern Software will help us provide top-notch services to residents of America’s largest township.”
The Town and MS Govern’s team have successfully kicked-off the project. You can learn more about the Town of Hempstead at http://townofhempstead.org/.
