Department Head Reports: Treasurer – Taxes are starting to come in. IT – working on updating the Election Laptops for the upcoming special election. He has also looked into working on a oversized printer from the Assessor’s office that is quite old and thinks it is at its end of life. The cost to repair is costly without knowing even then if it would work so he does not recommend doing that. Auditor – Received the new election equipment and were trained on it. It should be easy for the PEO’s to learn the new machines as they are similar to the old ones.
