OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky court system will roll out a new way to manage its caseload by the end of the year after issuing $28.1 million in bonds.
The Administrative office of the Courts is currently running a system that operates on equipment that's 25-years-old and software that is a decade old.
Daviess County Circuit Clerk Susan Tierney told the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer that the state Supreme Court or technology committee will select the counties where the new system will be tested.
Tierney says the Daviess County office was chosen as a pilot site for an electronic accounts receivable system.
Previously, a clerk who collected a fee would have to manually put the payment information into the case management system. The new accounts system updates when a payment is made.
