A pair of purchases using funds from the American Rescue Plan were approved by Washington County Commissioners at their meeting today (Tuesday).
The court then agreed to purchase three firewall routers and associated subscription services through CDWG, using a contract through Sourcewell. County Information Technology Director T.J. Harris said the routers, which total $38,950, allow more resiliency and redundancy while also providing services such as malware and email filtering.
Also at today’s meeting, commissioners:
- Approved formal notice for a road bore for a new water service line by Corix Utilities on Seward Plantation Road in Precinct 1.
- Approved a 60-day extension of 61 excess vacation hours for Justin Knuppel with EMS.
- Heard reports from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, EMS, IT and Veteran Service Officer.
