During the County Commission meeting held earlier this week, commissioners approved the purchase of two Barracuda Backup servers.
"These servers will be used to back up all County information," Ed Elam, county administrator said. "Jail records, election paperwork, everything in the attorneys office, anything related to the county."
Elam said there is information that hasn't been backed up yet, because of no room on the servers.
"It's a security issue," he added.
In other business, the commission:
• Approved an agreement with Meade and Hodgeman counties for a shared radio frequency. This allows county officials to talk during an emergency without taking up a frequency already being used.
• Approved an agreement with KDHE for Quantiferon In-Tube testing. This states that the county will collect the samples, send them to the KDHE and they will test for TB and other diseases.
• Approved file relocation for the county attorney. According to Elam, there are too many files in the county attorney office, and to better accommodate the lawyers dividing walls will be constructed to better break up the office. Elam said that this will allow the lawyers more privacy, and storage space.
• Heard a proclamation declaring April Child Abuse Prevention Month. The proclamation was presented by CASA.
• Approved the re-appointment of Marilyn Ellis as the representative for the Ford County Council on Aging.
The next County Commission meeting will be held at 6 p.m. April 1.
