New Generation of AREIS Arrives at Lucas County Auditor’s Office

Sojourner’s Truth Staff

Fifteen years after its implementation, the Auditor’s Real Estate Information System (AREIS) is getting a much needed overhaul due to an aging infrastructure and outdated technologies. Last week, Lucas County Auditor Anita Lopez announced that a new AREIS Online was up and running which keeps Lucas County at the forefront in terms of innovation and transparency among the nation’s counties.

“We are the first in the country,” said Lopez. “No one else in the country has this technology yet.”

The AREIS Online upgrade now means that anyone with access to the Internet can perform advanced searches for all Lucas County properties – residential, industrial or agricultural. The site has long been used by realtors and will continue to be a valuable tool for those in that profession.

Now realtors as well as interested others can search properties by address, by owner’s name, by parcel number or by assessor number. In addition properties can be viewed on grids or on up-to-date maps with a 360 degree view.

The Auditor’s office is particularly proud of the fact that they completed the upgrade below budget saving Lucas County taxpayers millions of dollars.

“We were able to negotiate an excellent contract with our existing vendor,” said Lopez. The county had set aside approximately $7.4 million for the upgrade but ended up spending only $2.4 million, said the Auditor.

Although it has been 15 years since the last upgrade, in the future the county won’t have to wait as long. With the new AREIS Online system, upgrades can be done annually.

The Auditor’s office is holding training sessions over the next six weeks at the Toledo Lucas County Library branches to introduce the general public to the system. Sites and dates for the sessions can be seen on page 16 of this issue.
