Mayor Frank Huttle III Announces the Launch of Bright Star ePermitting and eCode Enforcement System
This afternoon I was pleased to announce the State’s first cloud based ePermitting and eCode Enforcement system, which was provided by Bright Star.
The system will enable residents and contractors real time access to information on their projects that require permitting on a 24/7 basis.
Access to the new system will be available through www.cityofenglewood.com where users can access information on a faster and more efficient basis.
I have attached a press release that was sent out on the Bright Star System. Citizens, contractors and businesses can now go to the “Citizen Portal” link at www.cityofenglewood.org to access permit and code enforcement information.

MAYOR FRANK HUTTLE III ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF BRIGHT STAR ePERMITTING AND eCODE ENFORCEMENT SYSTEM
Launch of Bright Star System that streamlines important City services is part of the fulfillment of Mayor’s promise to bring best practices of the private sector to the City Government for enhanced delivery and cost savings
ENGLEWOOD – Englewood Mayor Frank Huttle III today announced the State’s first cloud based ePermitting and eCode Enforcement system, which will enable residents and contractors real time access to information on their projects on a 24/7 basis. Access to the new system will be available through www.cityofenglewood.com where users can access information on a faster and more efficient basis. The system promises not only to enhance efficiency but also to create significant savings in taxpayer dollars and in the productivity of City workers.
Mayor Huttle announced the completion of the initiative and the launch of the system as part of his ongoing program to bring the best practices of the business and private sector to the City Government. “We should be implementing innovative information technology solutions such as Bright Star at every opportunity in order to maximize the efficiency of City Government”, Mayor Huttle said. “We will continue to achieve this goal by lowering tax costs and improving services.”
“When I first became Mayor I promised to streamline the way the City Government did business both in the way it operated and the way it delivered services to residents. I have made that a top priority during my time as Mayor and today we are seeing another step in that direction with the deployment of the Bright Star ePermitting and eCode Enforcement system,” the Mayor stated. “The City of Englewood is open for business in the 21st century.”
Citizens, contractors and businesses can now go to the “Citizen Portal” link at www.cityofenglewood.org to access permit and code enforcement information…whether the permit is missing information, has been approved or denied (and the reasons for the denial) or ready to be picked up or emailed to them. Outside the office, inspectors enter information into the system via their iPad and it is updated real-time into the system. That means that as soon as the information is added, it is in the Citizen Portal. This is the first step in creating a cloud based “portal,” where all citizens and vendors will be able to do nearly everything they do at the Englewood Code Enforcement Office online including applying and paying for permits, requesting inspections, and so on.
