The Pulaski County Commissioners will
consider bids for a number of different items this morning. They’re
expected to choose a bank to handle the county’s cash management
services. The county received bids from four local banks last month.
Maintenance Director Mia Salyers will
discuss contracts for lawn care and snow removal at various county
properties, along with bids for the removal of an ash tree near the
Annex Building. Fuel bids will also be discussed, and the
commissioners are expected to finalize a contract with Golden Tech
for a new email system.
Additionally, the possibility of the
county once again helping with the cost of a new van for Pulaski
County Human Services will be discussed by the organization’s
executive director, Jacki Frain. Meanwhile, a $25,000 expense with a
Chicago media outlet will be presented for the commissioners’
approval by Community Development Commission Executive Director
Nathan Origer. The CDC has tried a few different advertising packages
in recent years, in an effort to attract tourists to Pulaski County.
Highway Superintendent Terry Ruff,
Sheriff Jeff Richwine, and Assessor Holly VanDerAa are also scheduled
to make appearances at this morning’s Pulaski County Commissioners
meeting. It starts at 8:30 a.m. EDT at the Pulaski County Courthouse.
A proposed switch in Pulaski County’s
email system still needs more review before the county commissioners
will approve it. Since January, IT Director Matt Voltz has been
recommending using Golden Tech, to switch county employees over to
the Office 365 email system. Voltz says it will make it easier for
various departments to coordinate their schedules, which would be
especially helpful for the county’s judicial system.
Pulaski County officials continue to
consider proposals for banking services and a new email system. When
the county commissioners and Treasurer Teresa Bryant convened as the
board of finance last week, she said the county got four bids from
local banks for cash management services.
The Pulaski County Commissioners have
decided to hold off on upgrades to the county’s email system, until
office holders have a chance to learn more about the proposed
changes. IT Director Matt Voltz told the commissioners last week that
the new system would make it easier for the courts, jail, and
prosecutor’s office to communicate when scheduling cases.
