How a Small Alabama City is Saving $1M for its Citizens

The City of Leeds City Administrator, Brad Watson continuously looks for ways to operate more efficiently. After meeting with Yolanda Watkins, Client Executive, he was excited that Avenu could be a one-stop-shop providing an online platform for citizens and business owners to pay the variety of taxes collected by the City (sales tax, business license fees, occupation tax, lodging tax and motor/fuel).

“Not only did I find a more efficient way of doing business, but it will also save our City $200,000 – $250,000 a year,” shared Brad. “The savings will allow us to provide more services for our citizens and business owners are thrilled with the convenience.”

With a five-year contract complete that resulted in a savings of over $1 million, this was quite a significant accomplishment for a small City. Congratulations to Yolanda Watkins. What a great way to serve our client and ultimately help the citizens of Leeds Alabama!
