Mayor Helen Miller and Vice Mayor Walter McKenzie attended the recent Suwannee League of Cities Dinner Meeting at which the Speaker was from TrueChoice Technology. After the meeting Mayor Miller spoke to the representative and secured information so that the representative could get together with Computer Guru and Town Manager Tommie Jerome Jones. Tommie said how surprised the representative was that Tommie has so much technical computer information.
Currently all of our departments in White Springs have telecommunications problems with phone, high tech internet, etc. Currently our service provider is Windstream. TrueChoice Technology out of Sandford provided White Springs with a quotation of $500 a month as compared to the $750 a month we were paying. In fact Chief Rodriquenz will now have information on her computers encrypted with new technology. Until it is determined the new system meets our needs both systems, the old and new will run parallel. to each other so no information is lost.
At the price quoted of $500 a month Mayor Miller stated we need to act on the matter since TrueChoice will provide the Town increased capability and decreased cost.
