Every effort has been made to ensure the LIMS portal is functional across different platforms and operating systems; however, for maximum compatibility with this site, we recommend using the most current version of Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 6.0 or later).

System Content

The LIMS serves as the electronic repository for legislative and policy-related documents generated by the Board of County Commissioners as well as certain other governing and advisory bodies within Johnson County Government. Consequently, system users can search, view, retrieve, and print any number of records or documents—even across multiple bodies and multiple years. The system features a full-text search capability, similar to many popular search engines available through the Internet, as well as more advanced search options that help refine and better define the desired search results.

 

The system was launched in late December 2006 in preparation for the 2008 Session of the Board of County Commissioners; therefore, data from previous years is in the process of being converted and added to the system on a “go-forward” basis, and new information is constantly being added.
