Municipal Software Corporation Selected to Provide Planning and Permitting Solution

City of Reedley, CA Chooses CityView PreBuilts

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 2, 2006) - Municipal Software Corporation (TSX VENTURE:MSZ) -

As an integral part of a Community Wide Geographic Information System project, the City of Reedley, CA purchased in July Municipal Software's complete CityView PreBuilt™ solution. As a result, project status information will soon be available in real-time to staff and citizens alike.

Reedley will use the CityView PreBuilts across Community Development, including the Building and Planning Divisions, as well as in the Fire, Public Works, and Finance Departments. The new system replaces a combination of paper based and outdated permitting systems.

"CityView will create for us 'institutional memory', giving us a digital record of all property based transactions, which we will benefit from for many years to come," said Dianne Guzman, Director of Community Development.

According to David Powell, Reedley's Fire Chief, "The CityView PreBuilt Software system will provide huge efficiencies, new capabilities, allow us to provide better service to the pubic and enhanced communication. Municipal Software is an ESRI business partner and all applications are fully compatible with and will work systematically as part of the Community Wide GIS project."

Iain McLean commented, "We are very pleased to be part of this important, community-wide project to implement an overall system in the City. The staff, council members, and public will reap the benefits of a more streamlined local government, and the City can benefit from best practices and GIS integration, right out of the box."

Reedley, a city of 21,000, is predominantly agriculture-based but has diversified greatly in recent years. It is now experiencing rapid growth.
