The fiber optics upgrades should be completed by August and the intranet is currently in development, said Kelly Klimpt, IT director. The Ad Astra scheduling system is now operating, he said.
The department is also enhancing security by offering cybersecurity training to employees, implementing network monitoring tools and upgrading tech support software.
