Brockton: City Awarded $25,000 TECH Grant

Brockton has received a $25,000 grant from the State’s Attorney General’s Office to help implement new code enforcement software.

According to Nick Giaquinto, Chief of Staff for Mayor Moises Rodrigues, the city has struggled to deal with vacant and blighted properties.

The new software would consolidate information on the city’s current operating system about these problem properties. 

 

Giaquinto says he doesn’t think it’ll take too long to get the software up and running.

 

As many as 20 city employees from a number of Brockton departments are expected to have access to this new program once they’ve completed training.
