Who is Innovative Network Solutions? Well it is an IT program that White Springs pays $930 a month for. You would think that we could secure an IT service locally in Lake City like Startech or Jim Smith locally but No, Ms. Tebo likes to spend your money.
Innovative Network Solutions contend that they are a competitive IT firm with firm fixed pricing with the support of real local people 24/7. Innovative ANetwork Solutions provides face to face interaction with staff as well as dedicated on-site time and a 24/7 help desk.
“Many Managed IT Providers claim their IT Services are flat rate, but will charge extra for on-site IT support, after hours calls, project support, or simply have limitations to the support their willing to provide. Innovative Network Solutions, Inc. offers the most comprehensive IT Service plans amongst all IT Managed Service Providers. All of our clients on our IT Maintenance service agreements receive:
Proactive IT maintenance
On-site, remote, after hours, emergency and project support
Dedicated on-site days
Telecommunication Management and more…
If we are scheduled to be on-site one day a week but we run into a major issue that requires us to come back the next day, you won’t be charged anything extra. System Administration, Network Administration, Cyber Security, you name it, whatever services you need, all… included.”

Innovative Network Solutions, Inc. performs regular maintenance, monitors your systems to prevent downtime and keeps your technology running smoothly.
*Website Support can be included in your monthly flat rate in addition to the IT Maintenance. Website Development is a onetime fee that can be paid up front or spread into monthly payments with an IT Maintenance agreement. Contact us to discuss details on Web Services pricing.” This of course was in tiny foremat on their site. But Ms. Tebo apparently had a contract signed by whom, I do not know but we will find out.
These last four years of council members who allowed Tebo to do as she pleased without getting bids is out of control and the sad part is that Vice Mayor McKenzie said that we can’t take all services away because that will not assist us. Well Vice Mayor McKenzie, with the entities we are paying, it makes us wonder if you may be concerned about “Grand Theft”. Municipalities are to secure bids, but not Ms. Tebo, she spends money on what she wants and doesn’t care how it would affect the Town.
What is interesting is that Innovative Networking has a low point of service starting at $300 a month and can go up to $3,200 a month. Since we pay $930 a month it would be interesting to see what we are getting under this contract.
In any event, Mayor Miller has asked for contracts and information on what we are receiving for $930 a month and Ms. Tebo was not too happy.
