County to discuss network expansion

November 1, 2008


Douglas County Commissioners on Monday will consider approving expanding the computer fiber network lines to several satellite offices.

According to a memo from Pam Madl, assistant county administrator, the county's public works shop and the South Lawrence satellite office, 2108 W. 27th St., need faster access to the county's data stored downtown. The county also wants to use the Dreher Building at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds as a backup or disaster recovery site, so the site needs more network connectivity.

The meeting will be 8:30 a.m. at the Douglas County Courthouse, 1100 Mass.

Because county election officials will use the commission chamber on the second floor for the final hours of advance voting Monday, the meeting will be in the county administrator's office next door to the chamber.

They just don't care. It isn't their money. They think the money will never stop, if it does they just raise our taxes more, like they do every year. Thank you, Lynn

Why can't the county use online storage for backup? This sort of request falls into the "want" rather than the "need" category. In a time of tight budgets, I would think the county would be concentrating on how to add the most value to the county taxpayers with what little money they have, rather than finding new things to spend money on.

If the city did not have a disaster recovery plan in place that included their IT infrastructure, this same group would be in here kvetching after a disaster that the city were idiots for not having a warm/hot site so that crucial city services could be brought back online quickly.
