Williams County is encourages all Townships to use ATLR and provides the ATLR software free of charge.
ATLR utilizes the spreadsheet program Microsoft Excel to provide the formatting interface for the reports along with many of the calculations required. In providing for the best usability of the software, numerous custom features and error checking procedures have been programmed into the standard Microsoft Excel interface.
Requirements: Computer with a Windows (not Mac) operating system. Microsoft Excel (or Office) versions 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 and 365; Excel versions prior to 2007 and Excel for Macintosh versions are not supported.
If your Township is not currently using ATLR, but would like to start, please contact the Williams County Finance Office at (701) 577-4506 or email Julie Larsen at JulieL@co.williams.nd.us. We can schedule a one-on-one meeting for training and any other issues/questions you may have.
