Municipal Software Corporation: Rockingham County, VA Chooses CityView PreBuilts

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 16, 2006) - Municipal Software (TSX VENTURE MSZ) announced today that Rockingham County, VA has purchased its CityView PreBuilt™ software solution to automate its integrated permitting, plan review, inspections, and code enforcement systems. This is the third sale for Municipal Software in the third quarter, following the announcements of the deals with Wright County, MN and Reedley, CA.

Based on the success of the CityView System in neighboring Albemarle County, Rockingham County residents soon can expect improved service, quality, and shorter turnaround time for development-related project and permit applications. This replaces a combination of paper master files, receipts, paper and verbal approvals and an existing automated permitting system supplied by another vendor.

William Vaughn, Director of Community Development, said, "The driving force behind why CityView was chosen was its ability to expand its capability. The system is completely open-ended and flexible. Therefore, with CityView Application Builder, the county can easily add new applications without relying on Municipal Software or third party vendors to perform the work."

Iain McLean, CEO of Municipal Software, said, "We are pleased with this new partnership with Rockingham. The new system will make it easier for residents to determine request requirements, to submit the application and to check its status."

Rockingham County has a population of 72,000 and reviews approximately 7,500 permits of various types each year.
