Fulton County considers computer upgrades

JOHNSTOWN — The Fulton County Board of Supervisors will look to upgrade county government computer services at its meeting at 1 p.m. Monday at the County Office Building.

The board will consider approving a resolution establishing a 2020 PC upgrade project through the county Information Technology Department. The project is part of the county’s 2020 capital plan.

Other proposed resolutions impacting that department to come before the board include one authorizing a contract with Eastern Managed Print Network for print management services this year. Supervisors are also expected to waive the Fulton County residency rule for hire of an assistant director of information technology.

In other personnel matters, the board is expected to consider approval of resolutions to: authorize paid leave for a county union official, advance a deputy’s pay rate, reclassify two clerk/typist positions in the Fulton County Probation Department, and extend two instructor positions in the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department.

In other business, the board will consider authorizing two separate resolutions with companies for consultant services and an engineering feasibility study.

The board will consider authorizing a grant application to the U.S. Department of Justice’s COPS-FAST program to fund a sheriff’s deputy as a school resource officer in the Mayfield Central School District.

Supervisors will consider approving two board proclamations. One is to recognize Wells Nursing Home on its 50th anniversary. The other recognizes the Johnstown Fire Department and other first responders who handled a recent hazmat incident at the Johnstown Industrial Park.
