Macon-Bibb County commissioners could spend nearly $200,000 to overhaul the software system in county courts.
A committee approved the funding at its meeting Tuesday morning.
Chief state court judge, William Adams, says it'd be a major upgrade from their current system from the 1980s.
"It's antiquated, prehistoric," Adams said.
The money would come from a public safety SPLOST.
Adams says they desperately need a new way to keep and share records - things like court and criminal records, or property deeds.
"Technology is just the reality now," he said. "There is a desperate urgency."
On Monday, he says the computer system in his office crashed again.
When that happens, they can't work efficiently.
